Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 2018

13% abv

The 2018 Chianti Classico Ama shows just how promising the vintage is. A burst of sweet red cherry fruit, cedar, leather, spice and orange peel give the 2018 a feeling of exuberance that is impossible to miss. The purity of the flavors is just striking. This is such a beautiful wine.
Antonio Galloni, 92 Points, Vinous

This wine is made from vines planted at high density (5,200 vines / hectare). The grapes are hand-harvested from vines that are 10-12 years old on average. Fruity and harmonic, the voluptuous Ama Chianti Classico expresses all the elegance of the estate’s wines.Fermentation has started with ambient yeasts, separately for each variety in steel tanks at controlled temperature between 30/32°, with manual pumpovers and a total cuvaison of 25 days for Sangiovese and 25 days for Merlot. After the first racking, the wine has been transferred to steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The blending of the grape varieties has taken place after malolactic fermentation. Afterwards the wine has been refined in second-passage oak barriques of thin grain, and finally bottled in January 2020.
