About the wine

From one of Tuscany’s leading, most historically important estates, Castello di Ama’s Chianti AMA is a stunning wine. Elegant is an understatement. Fresh and vibrant red fruits; cherry and raspberry. Great balance and structure with a hint of spice on the finish. Sangiovese shines in this pure and harmonic expression.

About the wine

Ama is a small village in the historic heart of Chianti Classico, in central Tuscany, between the Florence and Siena. Chianti AMA is produced almost entirely from Sangiovese grapes, with a small percentage of Merlot, which are all hand-harvested. Fermentation occurs separately in stainless steel with wild/natural yeasts. After the first racking, the wines are transferred back to steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The Sangiovese and Merlot wines are blended and second-passage oak barriques before bottling.
