Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 1997
First released in 1978, Bellavista is a special selection from our oldest vineyard, and has always been our flagship wine. Thanks to its distinctive personality, it faithfully expresses the superb qualities of terroir of Ama. This austere, elegant Chianti Classico is a long-time resident in the Olympus of the world’s greatest wines.
Spicy, fruity and herbaceous aromas. Flavor is quite juicy, full of luscious strawberry and cherry fruit, spice earth and leather. The acidity gives it a spicy freshness, even after twelve years.
Marmite and pine needles on the nose. Extremely rich, thick and concentrated. A real meaty flavor - roast beef and mint jelly. Dark fruits - prunes and figs on the finish.
