Amarsquo;s 2003 Chianti Classico is a powerful, super-ripe effort. A dark ruby, it presents sweet dark cherry and tobacco notes on an ample frame, with excellent concentration on the palate although the finish is marked by the hard tannins of the vintage. The wine did soften somewhat with air, yet my impression is that it will provide its best drinking relatively early. In 2002 Ama did not produce its single-vineyard wines and the estatersquo;s best fruit ended up in the normal bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2015.

A rich, ripe style that starts out supple, sporting cherry, tobacco and tea flavors. There's still some burly tannins underneath, which emerge on the finish, but overall this is long and balanced. Drink now through 2020.

Intensely fruity nose with crushed raspberries and plums. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. This is exceptional for the vintage. Ama sets the high water mark for quality Chianti Classico. Best after 2005.

The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Ama is fabulous. There is so much going on in the glass, as endless layers of perfumed dark red fruit caress the palate in stunning style. The wine’s precision, elegance and overall sense of harmony are all first class. Smoke, tar and roses add the final layers of complexity on the finish. Today the wine is mostly remarkable for its exceptional silkiness; readers will have to wait at least a few years for the aromatics and flavors to develop tertiary nuances. The Castello is a wine that sets a new standard for what is possible within the Chianti Classico appellation. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2027.

A well-crafted, superb Chianti Classico. Totally fruit-driven. Beautiful aromas of plum, leaf and cherry. medium- to full-bodied, with medium, fine tannins and a silky mouthfeel. Best from 2001 through 2004.

Winemaker's Notes:

Right from the founding of our winery, we studied the characteristics of the sangiovese grape, testing new training systems, improving clonal selection, and above all singling out the best vineyard plots to source for our wine. Castello di Ama is the truest expression of Chianti Classico from our superb terroir, a land that yields wines with remarkable cellaring potential.
