Castello di Ama

Art, landscape and the wisdom of wine have always co-existed in Ama. The Etruscan origins attest to the existence of a fortified town in pre-Roman times.

Ama was owned by the Firidolfi family during the Holy Roman Empire. The castle, which stands in the denomination, was probably destroyed in the 15th century during the Aragonese invasions in the Chianti area.

In the early 1700s new dwellings were built on the ruins of the castle. Hence, the construction of the villas belonging to Pianigiani and Ricucci families, which now comprise the Castello di Ama estate headquarters.

A document dating to July 1773 contains a report by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Leopold II, as the Governor of Tuscany, which praised the excellence of the hilly terrain.

The beauty of Ama spurred Tomaso Carini to oversee the rebirth of this land in the early 70s, involving 3 friends (GianVittorio Cavanna, Pietro Tradico and Lionello Sebasti) in the project.

The four entrepreneurs, led by Cavanna, replanted most of the vineyards and built a modern fermentation cellar, which became an innovative model for the entire area.

Marco Pallanti joined Ama in 1982, a young Florentine agronomist who became the estate’s winemaker after extensive technical training at the University of Bordeaux under the supervision of Patrick Léon.

Lorenza Sebasti, , Lionello's daughter, took over the estate’s management in 1993. A 40-year labour together, Lorenza and Marco continue to share the same passion and vision.

The second generation of the Carini, Tradico and Sebasti families run the company today.
