About the wine

Fruit forward with juicy red cherry, strawberry notes, orange zest and a hint of liquorice. Some tertiary hints of leather. A juicy and succulent palate with a silky-smooth texture. Tannins are structured yet delicate. Lively freshness with notes of dark red fruits and well-integrated wood.

About the wine

From one of Tuscany’s leading, most historically important estates, Castello di Ama is located in a small village in the historic heart of Chianti Classico, in central Tuscany, between the Florence and Siena. This is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Malvasia Nera. Harvest is carried out by hand towards the end of August. Each grape variety is vinified separately using native yeasts, in steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine is then transferred into barriques for malolactic fermentation. Blending of the three grape varieties takes place at the end of the malolactic fermentation. Afterwards the wine is transferred into oak barrique for approximately 12 months of maturation.
