Product Info

TASTING NOTE:

Fragrant and refined, this features enticing aromas of rose, iris, woodland berry and crushed botanical herb. Medium bodied and loaded with finesse, the elegant palate features juicy Marasca cherry, strawberry compote and dark culinary spice. Polished tannins and fresh acidity keep it well balanced. Drink through 2028. The Sorting Table.

-Wine Enthusiast, 93 pts

 

This is the quintessential happy wine from Tuscany that will easily pair with wintery pici al ragù or summery pasta al pomorodo. There is enormous versatility in the all-season Castello di Ama 2018 Chianti Classico Ama. The wine is round, plump and approachable. It offers enormous freshness and the bright berry intensity of the Sangiovese grape. Red cherry and cassis are backed by red rose petal and softly fragrant potting soil. I tasted this wine immediately after Castello di Ama's Pinot Nero di Toscana Il Chiuso, and I was struck by the similarities of the two wines in terms of silkiness and those pretty rose aromas.

-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts

 

A tight, juicy red with lots of cherries and hints of orange peel and stone. Medium to full body and light, polished tannins. Fresh finish. Drink or hold.

-James Suckling, 92 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

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
