Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo 2017

Castello di Ama San Lorenzo, takes its name from the stunning 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 is a guarantee for the consumer, both in terms of origin and in terms of quality. The production regulation makes it obligatory that the grapes are totally produced in the estate and that the wine is released in the market 30 months after the harvest.

Colour

Bouquet

Flavour
