The Pellegrini family has been farming grapes in the hills of Bolgheri for four generations. It began releasing wine under its own label in 1998. Filippo and Alessandro Pellegrini, manage the estate and Nicola Scottini is the winemaker. Aia Vecchia is located deep in the Tuscan countryside between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci. This is an area where the favorable microclimate and ideally suited soils make possible the production of very high quality wines. The particular position of the vineyards provides the vines with both direct sunlight and sunlight reflected by the sea. This in general allows an early harvest. The property consists of 170 acres 118 are vineyards, 74 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. The Morellino di Scansano is produced in the estate of Magliano in Toscana (Grosseto) 24 acres are planted with Sangiovese and Merlot grape varieties.

Tasting notes
Delicate aromas of wood and vanilla emphasize the structured and elegant taste with intense notes of wild berries, ripe juicy sour cherries and hints of sweet spices that leave the palate. The wine is well structured with a strong and mellow texture.
