Castello di Ama

Perched atop a 500 meter rise, the Castello di Ama winery is a true showpiece occupying a cluster of medieval buildings reminding a visitor of the depth of tradition in this ancient and venerable region. The vines themselves cascade down the slopes which surround, taking advantage of the dynamic terroir and exceptional climate of this pocket of Chianti Classico. As a result, the range of wines on offer are varied and expressive, offering great purity and structure as well as characterful individuality.

Castello Di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 1997 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93)

Bright medium-dark ruby. Expressive aromas of raspberry, chocolate and nutty oak are lifted by flowers and minerals. Bright and easygoing but very concentrated too, showing terrific palate-staining intensity to the flavors of dark berries, ripe red cherry and cocoa powder. This powerful wine comes across as balanced and very accessible thanks to its creamy, soft mouthfeel. Finishes ripely tannic and long. Thanks to its excellent acidity and balance, this is one of the top dozen 1997 Tuscan wines--a truly successful effort in an overrated vintage of which I am generally not a fan (but it was a much more successful vintagein Chianti Classico than in Montalcino, for example.) However,I should caution readers that this tasting note was on a magnum; from standard 750 ml. bottles the wine is clearly more evolved. This spent 14 months in 75% new oak; from a separate set of lab data, I also have 30.8 g/l as its dry extract value.

Castello di Ama l'Apparita 2009 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

Stunning as usual, the 2009 L’Apparita (100% Merlot) starts off slow but builds steady momentum and intensity. This is a seamless and beautifully integrated expression that sees fine contrast between acidity, structure and fruity extract. The wine is still tight, so give it time to complete its bottle evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
