Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo 2013
JS95: "Tight and super silky with a gorgeous density and precision that gives great polish to the tannins. Makes them almost dusty. Lots of subtle dark berry, mineral and spice. Drink or hold."
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. San Lorenzo is 80% Sangiovese, 13% Merlot, and 7% Malvasia Nera. Flavors of cherry, spice, and mineral, with polished tannins and sweet fruit. Organic.
