Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Powerful, pure and complex on the nose with rich aromas of leather, a bit of meatiness, stones, and rich red fruits. Elegant and yet powerful in the mouth with light fresh fruit framed with mossy edges and flecks of mineral earth This is really making a statement that power is not the end all with its gorgeous purity of red berry fruit, fine tannins, and real acid driven energy in the mouth. The finish is long and shows a hint of dried fruit, almost prune like complexity along with hints of leather and tobacco. A gorgeous wine. 94pts

But we are wrong, for we do have here in Italy some wine “houses” that are something better, something beyond the normal cellar.

A ruby red that is at the same time luminous, lively, and intense. The bouquet is composed of wild red berry fruit. A gorgeous, aromatic marriage of fruit and spice mark an impressive attack, in a wine that is overall refined and stylish.
