The La Casuccia vineyard covers 12.58 hectares, six planted in 1978 and the rest in 2007. The plot has been terraced to improve aspecting and ensure more uniform ripening. La Casuccia is split into nine parcels of land and in the best vintages it is typically parcel numbers 49, 46 and 45 which contribute to producing the limited quantities of this vineyard selection.
Deep, dark ruby red, almost impenetrable, with crimson hues.
With fruity notes of red berries and forest berries, some spice suggesting vanilla pod, and tertiary notes of pipe tobacco and leather.
Stylish and delicate, with subtle but noticeable tannins. A mouthfilling wine with a full flavour. Nicely juicy with a long finale.

Castello di Ama

From this winery:
