“A place of cultic importance in the wine world. We Italians often complain that we do not have our own Chateaux Margaux, our Romanée Conti, our Opus One. 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 (…)” – Description from dvoristanac

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Reserva Castello di Ama 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This producer is one that provides "next level" Chianti perennially. The immediate first impression on the nose is of depth, darkness, and complexity. The beautiful rich dark fruit, black cherry and blackberry, has a pleasant hard edge that suggests seriousness. Overlying the fruit is cedar, dried violets, charred sandalwood, faint vanilla bean,...

  • Castello di Ama la Casuccia Chianti Classico 2001

    Snoothrank:

    For a bottle with ten years age, this wine showed no degradation, as I watch it's deep, dark ruby color swirl around the glass. On the nose, it was like a basket of ripe wild berries, with soil notes, toasted chestnut and a whiff of dusty cocoa. On the palate, a velvety wash of vibrant dark red fruits coated every taste bud and then slowly melte... Read More
