This wonderful property in Castelnuovo Berardenga has a long history. The liberal senator Giovanni Malagodi, one of the founding fathers of the Republic, passionate about wine, like Cavour, Einaudi and Sonnino, in 1934 acquired this wonderful estate in the Sienese countryside. From a stronghold in the wars between Siena and Florence, the Aiola castle had already undergone a total transformation over the centuries, until it became an elegant manor house surrounded by vineyards. Passed as an inheritance to his daughter Maria Grazia first and his niece Federica then, it was acquired in 2012 by the Russian Eliseev family who completely modernized it to transform it into a state-of-the-art farm. Reduced range that presented this year, where the famous red Senatore blend intent on completing the maturation phases is missing, we will return to talk about it in the next edition of the Guide.
