Aslan, or lion, is the heraldic symbol of Tuscany and represents bravery and all that is good. Aslan is a collection of Tuscan wines from Chianti to the southern coastal region of Maremma.

​Fattoria San Felo was created in 2001 by the Vanni family, fueled by their passion for viticulture, their attachment to the farming traditions of the area and their desire to promote the Maremma viticultural appellation. Fattoria San Felo is located in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, on the slopes of Mount Amiata, between the hills of Uccellina Park and Costa d’Argento.

The vineyards consist of sandstone soils rich in schist. The Mediterranean climate is influenced by sea breezes, sun-filled days and cool nights. The sea has an important impact on the local microclimate with temperature variations that are never too extreme. The grapes ripen slowly, leading to fresh and elegant wines rich in taste and minerality.

Winemaker Fabrizio Moltard has worked with some of the most prestigious wineries in Italy and is described in the wine world as possessing great professionalism, sensory capabilities and profound experience. He shows enormous respect for terroir and has an extraordinary ability to translate this reverence into the unique identities that he creates for each wine. Decanter Magazine called Fabrizio “the secret ingredient in many top Maremma wineries.”

Fabrizio Moltard graduated from the Facoltà di Agraria in Florence in 1987. He has worked for the Marchesi Frescobaldi family, Angelo Gaja in Montalcino and Bolgheri, Planeta in Sicily, Agostina Pieri in Brunello di Montalcino, Azienda Agricola Montauto in Manciaco in the Maremma and Montepeloso on the Tuscan Coast. Fabrizio Moltard has been with Fattoria San Felo since their beginning. 

Anna and Mario Monticelli travel to Fattoria San Felo to meet with Fabrizio in the vineyard and winery. Anna and Mario create the blend for the Aslan Maremma Toscana Rosso using Fabrizio’s individual lots.
