L’Aiola is located at 14 Km from Siena across an ancient white road connections Vagliali “the 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 on 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 period, although it maintained some original elements. In 1934 Aiola was bought by Senator Giovanni Malagodi who started bottling the Chianti Classico with his own label since the 60’s, starting so the wine production. In 2012, Aiola ownership passed to some Russian entrepreneurs which paved immediately the way to an important program concerning the replanting of new vineyards and cellar refurbishment though the renovation of all the 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.
