Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 2015

SKU 1595


Wine from vintage 2015 are fresh, with a nice alcohol degree and fruity, due to the significant temperature excursions between night and day during autumn which have facilitated the aromatic structures. On a polyphenolic point of view, these are wines of important breed, elegant, powerful and with a nice volume. After several samples and organoleptic analysis in our vineyards and laboratory, harvest has been carried out by hand in 10-12-kg crates on 22nd September for Merlot and from 5th to 8th October for Sangiovese. Harvest 2015 was full of great expectations which have been successfully fulfilled.

Wine SpectatorThe raspberry and cherry flavors are immediate in this elegant, balanced red, followed by accents of earth and spice. Not excessively long, but well-proportioned. Drink now through 2022. 900 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Ama sees fruit sourced from the estate's youngest vines. On average, they are ten years old. This results in an approachable and easy-drinking red that does not have the complexity or the structure of the top-shelf expressions. That is exactly what makes this wine so carefree and attractive. The tannins are mild and smooth, and this food-friendly red ends with a bright touch of crisp acidity.
