Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Ama 2020
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. This Chianti Classico is Sangiovese from four of the estate’s vineyards. This is fresh and delicate, with fresh red fruit, sour cherry, a hint of spice, and floral notes on the nose. Practicing organic.
JS93: A fresh and composed red with blackcurrant and blueberry aromas with minerals and citrus underneath. It's medium-bodied with fine tannins and a racy, long finish. Drink or hold.
VM90: The 2020 Chianti Classico Ama is a pretty, understated wine that shows the vivid side of Sangiovese in its bright, red-fleshed fruit. Medium bodied and vibrant, with brisk acids and lifted aromatics, the 2020 is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. Ama is the estate's young-vines Chianti Classico. I loved it.
