|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Castello di Ama|
This is really juicy and delicious with ripe cherries and berries, as well as some bark and dried orange. Medium to full body with round, refined tannins and a flavorful finish. Transparent and linear. Lively at the end. Excellent energy."
The 2019 Ama is a lovely and nuanced wine, crafted from the estate’s youngest vines with an average age of 10 to 12 years old. Refined in second-use barriques, the aromas are framed by understated oak nuances, however intriguing scents of cherry, sage blossom, dried flowers and exotic herbs are uninhibited. The sumptuous palate is lifted by citrus zest, and finessed tannins coat the mouth with a caressing clay-like texture. (Drink between 2022-2031)
A silky, open-knit wine, the 2019 Chianti Classico Ama is wonderfully alluring from the very first taste. This gracious, aromatically expressive Chianti Classico from the estate's young vines, will drink beautifully upon release.
Dark fruit notes of blackberry, blueberry and black currant infuse the velvety texture, while a solid base of tannins lies beneath. The tannins linger in the end, with a subtle refrain of fruit. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2023 through 2029. 8,750 cases made, 1,300 cases imported.
