A signature wine of Fattoria della Aiola, Rosso del Sena- tore, «Senator’s Red», was created by its founder, Senator Giovanni Malagodi. An Aiola’s take on «Super Tuscan», made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, with a harmonious balance of rich and soft flavours, this wine brings out the best of each grape characteristics but with the unquestionable spirit of Toscana. «Rosso del Senatore» spends at least 24 months in French oak bar- rels and over 3 months in bottles. An intense deep ruby red colour with garnet reflections. Complex, slightly spicy nose of ripe red fruit. On the palate very warm and velvety with smooth tannins.
