Bright red with dark ruby reflexes. Typical nose of Chianti Classico Ama: elegant with notes of ripe red fruits well blended with a slight spiciness. Harmonious and fresh, excellent balance since the juvenile phase, lingering aftertaste of berries.

Vineyards location The total area in vineyards owned by the Castello di Ama is approximately 90 hectares, of which about 65 acres are enrolled in the DOCG Chianti Classico and the remaining 25 acres are producing wines IGT Toscana.
Climate Start of year cold and perturbed, at the end of March, there was an initial increase in temperature. In April, with the first real sunny days there was the crying of the screws with a revival of vegetation around the early days of the month. The month of May has continued with temperatures above seasonal averages thus increasing the advance of vegetation. June and July exceptionally warm and poor rains have continued to grow ahead of the vegetation. August was characterized by lack of rain and days of African heat. These conditions have come to accentuate the already well ahead of maturity, especially in early varieties. A drop in temperatures allowed to slow down the harvest of Sangiovese
Composition of the land The cycle of replanting vineyards obsolete began in 1996 and still continues at a steady pace. Since 2010 the production coming from younger vines entered in DOCG has become so significant in order not to change the character of the Castello di Ama Reserve, we decided to begin production of a new Chianti Classico.
Plants n. x hectare 5,300 in the five estate vineyards (Bellavista, Casuccia, San Lorenzo, and Bertinga Montebuoni) according to our experience and the most modern standards of quality viticulture.

Vinification The maceration is continued for about 15 days. After racking 630 hectoliters began spontaneous malolactic fermentation and regular
Aging After assembling the wine was in used barriques where it remained for about 12 months.

From this winery:
