The first Haiku vintage was in 2009 and the wine is a blend of three varieties: 50% Sangiovese, and 25% each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. During the planting of the second section of the Montebuoni vineyard, completed in 2001, it was decided to experiment with the renowned international variety, Cabernet Franc, which Ama had never used.
Deep crimson with ruby nuances.
A woodsy fruitiness hinting mainly at blackberry; the spice shows touches of ripe pepper, green peppercorns, nutmeg, and sandalwood. Balsamic, almost mentholated nuances.
Rich, muscular, elegant, velvety, and lingering.

Castello di Ama

From this winery:
“A place of cultic importance in the wine world. We Italians often complain that we do not have our own Chateaux Margaux, our Romanée Conti, our Opus One. But we are wrong, for we do have here in Italy some wine “houses” that are something better, so...
