Winemaker Notes

The wine shows colors of red garnet accompanied by a bouquet of cherries, menthol and a hint of rosemary. On the palate, the wine is round and rich without being overpowering. It is spicy on the mid-palate and lively on the back-end, with flavors of black current, licorice and coffee, followed by a long-lasting finish that is slightly minty and boasts a juicy mouth-watering sensation.

An ideal wine for red meat, game based dishes and hard cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Aia Vecchia 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Sor Ugo shows a broad and more sophisticated approach. This edition is one of the best made so far. The steady vintage has played its role in shaping a robust and thickly concentrated wine with loads of black fruit, spice, licorice and some road paving. The oak element is evident with cinnamon, clove and cured leather added to the attractive mix. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Verdot, and the wine is aged in oak for 18 months. Some 30,000 bottles were produced.

Aia Vecchia Aia Vecchia Vineyards Winery Image

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 favorable microclimate and The Pellegrini family, Aia Vecchia’s owners, have been grape growers in the Bolgheri area for several generations and have sold their grapes to many of the most notable wineries in the region for decades. After replanting their original vineyards in 1995, the following year they took the plunge and established their own winery with the goal of creating a portfolio of small-lot, high-quality Super Tuscan blends focusing on Bordeaux grape varieties.

On one of the family’s properties there was an old building called Aia Vecchia, which would become the symbol and namesake of the company. The family enlisted the help of well-known agronomist Daniel Schuster in the selection of their vines, which were imported directly from Bordeaux. They also sought out the services of another highly talented consultant—Hungarian winemaker Tibor Gal, who had been chief winemaker at the pioneering Super Tuscan Ornellaia in Bolgheri. With this lineup, Aia Vecchia developed Lagone, their Merlot-based first wine, in 1998.

Given the success of this vineyard’s Lagone, Aia Vecchia, under the supervision of Gal, launched a Cabernet-based Super Tuscan in 2001, their top label Sor Ugo. Aia Vecchia added white wine in 2008. The Vermentino is made from estates at Orbetello and Magliano in Toscana, both of which are in Grosseto province some 60 miles southeast of Bolgheri.

Today the family farms a total of 112 acres split between the two estates in Bolgheri and Maremma Grossetana. In the Bolgheri zone they have planted Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot grapes. The estate of Magliano in Toscana (Grosseto), is planted to Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Vermentino and Viognier grape varieties. The winery and cellars, Aia Vecchia, are located in Castagneto Carducci, in Bolgheri. Elia Pellegrini now manages the estate with his father and uncle; Nicola Scottini is winemaker.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
