Castello di Ama San Lorenzo Chianti Classico 2010

WS95, JS93, WA92

Offers a combination of power and elegance, with a racy feel. Wild cherry, strawberry, rose and leafy, woodsy flavors permeate this driving red. The finish is long, but this needs time to shed the tannins. Well-defined from start to finish. Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Merlot. - WS95

Wonderful aromas of dried orange peel, cedar and cherries. Some coffee too. Full body with silky tannins and a long finish. A beautiful single-vineyard Chianti Classico.- JS93

Compared to the 2011 vintage, the 2010 Chianti Classico Vigneto Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is a wine of good depth and focus thanks to the cooler vintage. The bouquet shows standard Chianti Classico aromas of bright fruit and cherry with offbeat tones of Pecorino cheese rind and white chocolate thrown into the mix. In the mouth, it shows extraction and power - WA92

The Winery

Castello di Ama San Lorenzo takes its name from the magnificent wide valley that our18th century villas overlook. Castello di Ama San Lorenzo is made from grapes that come from our best vineyards: part of the vineyards were planted between 1974 and 1978, at an average density of 3,000 vines per hectare, while newer plantings at a density of 5,300 vines per hectare, starting in 1996 and continuing to the present date, replace the outdated vineyards. The vines are vertically trained, to the open lyre pruned to the Guyot system, and to spurred cordon. The varieties, grafted onto rootstock 420, are 80% Sangiovese and 20% Malvasia Nera and Merlot.

Castello di Ama San Lorenzo is an extraordinarily elegant, powerful and intense wine. Undoubtedly it represents the perfect picture of the uniqueness of our territory.

Deep colour. Open nose of jammy fruits (fig, plums). On the palate the style is rather open, dense with a good structure, fruit intertwined with oaky and spicy notes, and firm tannin, a guarantee of a good ageing...
