Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 2006

13% abv

” The 2006 Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista boasts compelling inner sweetness, great power and huge overall structure. Dark cherries, flowers, licorice, tobacco and incense are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in this explosive, totally seductive Bellavista. The 2006 needs time to fully integrate its French oak, but it is shaping up to be a jewel. It is quite clear from this tasting the 2006 is evolving at a glacial pace. Readers who can be patient will be amply rewarded.” 95+ The Wine Advocate

“(a blend of 80% sangiovese and 20% malvasia nera; 5 grams per liter total acidity; 3.52 pH; 28.5 g/l dry extract; 13.1% alcohol; aged 14 months in 40% new oak): Good full ruby-red. Captivating aromas of strawberry, raspberry, dark plum, flowers and incense, with an energizing blood orange note emerging with aeration. Quite supple, even creamy, in the middle palate, with pure red berry, floral and mineral flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes round, seamless and very long, with silky, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness. This outstanding, very refined Chianti offers a recognizable bay leaf nuance typical of malvasia nera. One of the best wines from Ama in the new century, this 2006 ought to be at its best between 2018 and 2028. 94+ Points Ian D’Agata, Vinous
