HISTORY

L’Aiola is situated 14 km-drive from Siena across an ancient white road connecting Vagliagli, “la valley of garlics”, with Radda in Chianti.

Built as a fortress during the local wars between the Florentine Republic and the Republic of Siena which ended in the 17th century, the Aiola Castle went through a radical transformation. The original aspect, characterized by town walls, drawbridge, secret underground tunnels has gradually left space to an elegant manor villa during the Renaissance, althought it maintained some original elements.

In 1934 Aiola was bought by Senator Giovanni Malagodi, who started bottling the Classic Chianti with its own label since the 60s so that starting the wine production.

In 2012 the ownership passed to some Russian entrepreneurs which paved immediately the way to an important program concerning the replanting of new vineyards and cellar refurbishment through the renovation all of equipment. Today Aiola lies at the heart of a modern farmhouse in the Classic Chianti, where vineyards, entirely surrounded by ancient holm forests, stretch across 36 hectares. The respect for the environment and its traditions, the rich experience gained during the years alongside of the deployment of cutting-edge equipment are a good recipe to keep up the brand prestige.
