Product Info

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Ruby red with vermillion nuances. Aromas are fruity with red fresh fruits, cherry and raspberry notes. The palate is elegant and harmonic with well-balanced spicy notes already at the first impact.

Blend: 96% Sangiovese, 4% Merlot

TASTING NOTES:

Rose, mature red berry and wild herb aromas mingle with a balsamic whiff of eucalyptus. The delicious, polished palate boasts a restrained elegance, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper alongside refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced and lends just enough tension.

- Wine Enthusiast, 95 pts. 

Lots of primary sour cherries, blueberries and spices here. Medium-bodied with cranberry flavors and intense acidity throughout. Little edgy on the finish, but the warmth and generosity to the juicy tannins hold this together.

- James Suckling, 92 pts. 

The 2017 Chianti Classico Ama is a terrific wine that opens to a mid-weight feel but produces an enormously expressive bouquet. The hot vintage has shaped warm tones of tilled earth and dark fruit but it is all carefully weighed and in context. The wine is open, accessible and generous. You can't go wrong with this entry-level offering from Castello di Ama, especially with a lentil or spelt soup.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts.
