Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Ama 2019
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.
JS94: This is really juicy and delicious with ripe cherries and berries, as well as some bark and dried orange. Medium to full body with round, refined tannins and a flavorful finish. Transparent and linear. Lively at the end. Excellent energy. Drink or hold.
VM92: A silky, open-knit wine, the 2019 Chianti Classico Ama is wonderfully alluring from the very first taste. This gracious, aromatically expressive Chianti Classico from the estate’s young vines, will drink beautifully upon release.
