Right from the founding of our winery, we studied the characteristics of the sangiovese grape, testing new training systems, improving clonal selection, and above all singling out the best vineyard plots to source for our wine. Castello di Ama is the truest expression of Chianti Classico from our superb terroir, a land that yields wines with remarkable cellaring potential.

the blend was assembled and went to barriques, 20% of them new and the remainder 1-3 years old.
Castello di Ama
Dark ruby red with an intriguingly luminous rim
Rich bouquet, with emphatic fruit and floral notes classic to Sangiovese, such as raspberry, wild berry, and violets, well meshed with impressions of earth, juniper, and pine resin
Elegant in the mouth, with very appealing tannins contributing to significant depth, superb acidity, and impressive approachability. The long-lingering finish offers a delicious amalgam of fruit and spiciness.
chalky-clay soils of gravel-pebbly texture

The grapes were graded for quality first in the vineyard and then on sorting tables in the winery. After de-stemming and crushing, the must was chilled and then fermented (at 33°C) in stainless steel, with particularly gentle pumpovers. After a lengthy 24/25 day maceration, the wine was drawn off, amounting to some 1,400 hl, and completed malolactic fermentation, most of in barriques.
Sangiovese (80%) and Malvasia nera, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Nero (20%).
