Aia Vecchia is the name of an old building which is today the centre of a company deep in the Tuscany countryside between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci. This is an area where the particularly favourable microclimate and ideally suited soils make possible the production of very high quality wines. The particular position gives the vines very much light, both direct sunlight as sunlight reflected by the sea. This in general allows an early harvest. The property consists of 69 hectars of open ground: 48 are vineyards, 30 of which are under the Bolgheri DOC. The planted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are used to produce Lagone and Sor Ugo. In the cellar situated in Castagneto Carducci there are 2000 barriques. The Morellino di Scansano is produced in the estate of Magliano in Toscana (Grosseto) which consists of 10 hectares planted with Sangiovese and Merlot grape varieties. Read less

Big and chewy, but with finesse. There is a lot going on - sweet fruit, vanilla, spice and nice tannins. Very dark and intense, but this isn't a jammy one-note wine. Very elegant with a nice focus. Would pair well with grilled meats and intense cheeses.

Die Aromapalette ist reich: Gewürznoten, rote Beeren, ein Hauch von Gemüse, Waldboden und Ausbauaromen. Unter der stoffigen Robe sind spürbare Tannine vorhanden, die mit der fruchtigen Säure für eine ausgeprägte Struktur verantwortlich sind. Die erstaunliche Vielseitigkeit ist das Ergebnis einer gekonnten Assemblage von verschiedenen Rebsorten. Das Finale ist von eindrücklicher Länge und Intensität.
