Castello di Ama San Lorenzo, takes its name from the lovely valley that is home to the 18th-century villas Pianigiani and Ricucci. This wine is made entirely by our estate grapes, coming specifically from old vine systems and from vineyards of more than 10 years old. Gran Selezione stands on the top of the quality pyramid of Chianti Classico and it is a guarantee for the consumer, both in terms of origin and in terms of quality. The production regulation makes obligatory that the grapes are totally produced in the estate and that the wine is released in the market 30 months after the harvest.
Pure ruby-red.
Fruity with cherry and strawberry notes. Some tertiary hints remind leather.
Ripen red fruits, succulent, intriguing and long-lasting. Tannins are ripen and delicate. The aftertaste expresses a lively freshness with notes of dark red fruits, wet ground and wood.
