About the Wine

Light, bright and perfumed, a bottle designed to be your next picnic companion. Made from a field blend of Aleatico, Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Merlot from forty five year old vines planted over sandy loam in Orvieto. Jacopo often chooses field blends, trusting that nature will find harmony. The grapes spend a week on the skins before six months aging in vat. Filled with refreshing notes of sour cherry, blood orange and bitter herbs. Wonderfully lifted and light on its feet, a wine that brings pure joy.

About Ajola

Ajola is a small farm made up of vines and olive groves. It is situated in the rolling hills outside Orvieto, at the crossroads of Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany. Jacopo Battista began the project back in 2012, with a view to nurture the plants back to life after several years of neglect. Having previously worked at Le Coste, Jacopo was guided by the idea of tending land in the same way farmers from previous generations had. A healthy way of farming that is honest and respectful to both land and history, an alternative to industrial farming. Jacopo has worked organically since the beginning, treating the vines with just a small amount of copper and sulphur and preparing various herbal teas to boost their health.

Jacopo farms three and a half hectares of vines up to 75 years old planted over sandy loam of volcanic origin, set at up to 400 metres above sea level. He also has begun farming an additional hectare and a half of Procanio and Ansonica of old vineyards where volcanic soil are made up of black sand and stones. The resulting wines are pure, rustic and always incredibly easy to drink.
