Castello di Ama Al Poggio Bianco 2016
Castello di Ama is one of our favorite estates in Tuscany, just 12 miles northeast of Siena in the hills of Gaiole. The site is spectacular, set on a rounded hilltop 1600 feet above sea level. With only 10% of this Chardonnay going into wood, this shows off minerality and beautiful texture, ripe peach, lemon fruit and perfect balance. Practicing Organic.
WA91+: "The 2016 Chardonnay di Toscana Al Poggio offers great freshness, crispness and purity with aromas of white peach, cantaloupe melon, blanched almond and Golden Delicious apple. Castello di Ama proprietor Marco Pallanti is celebrating his 37th harvest this year." - The Wine Advocate
