Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 6 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine which punches well above its weight, Marco Pallanti's Chianti Classicois so finely perfumed that it would surely gladden the heart of any fine winelover, and those charmed by Pinot Noir in particular. For the nose isexquisitely detailed, sweetly scented with bright redcurrant, herbs and a hintof meat while the palate's brilliantly constructed, the red-berry flavoursperfectly interwoven with fine tannins and deliciously fresh, invigoratingacidity. (David Berry Green - BBR Buyer)

Relatively few, perhaps, but true domains of Bacchus where everything is utterly flawless, where time assumes the feel of history, the memory of timeless impressions, the quintessential ingredient in the evolution of wine. Castello di Ama is one of those places where one encounters the Platonic absolutes (…)” Read less

Full bodied on the palate with a touch of "sous bois" - a fancy way of describing the earthy, forest-like, leafy character - alongside black cherries and black berries. Full of character and brilliant with earthy Tuscan fare.
