Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 2001
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.
Earthy, dusty red fruit aromas lead into a juicy win. Full of ripe red fruits, earth with light oak, this fairly acidic wine finishes with a great bunch of fruit, and has good balance along the whole length of the wine.
Iron and iodine on the nose. Smooth on entry, but the smokey flavors build quickly. Well balanced with good minerality. A sharpness and some delicate hay flavors. Very nice. Good structure and drying tannins.
