Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 2013
Wild berry, moist soil and a hint of menthol lead the way. The silky, easy-drinking palate shows polish and charm, offering juicy wild cherry, white pepper and a hint of anise alongside sleek tannins and bright acidity. - WE88
Appears a lively, dark-ruby flecked red. Classic Chianti Classico di Ama nose, an elegant melding of well-ripened wild red berry with subtle spice. Beautiful integration and balance of all its components, even in its youth, including a crisp and acidity and silky tannins, with a long-lingering, berry-laden finish. - Winemaker's Notes
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plantings at a density of 5,300 vines per hectare, starting in 1996 and continuing to the present date, replace the outdated vineyards.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.
