Vigneto la Casuccia Chianti Classico Castello di Ama Tuscany Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Compared to the feminine Bellavista, all diamonds and pearls, La Casuccia is<br/>altogether more manly, broad shouldered, brawny even, thanks to the significant<br/>slug of Merlot. There's a sense of earthiness to compliment its undoubted<br/>sleekness; a wine that would benefit from another decade in bottle, for sure,<br/>if you can wait; the problem with 2006 is that it tastes too darn good. Pair<br/>with a shoulder of lamb. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)

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