“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 Sangiovese Blend Chianti Classico DOCG 25th Anniversary 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The nose here is a bit on the sweet side with notes of figs and milk chocolate floating above a bed of roasted plum and cherry fruits. On entry this shows lots of acid, but it is well-buffered by lots of sweet fruit. Notes of leather, limestone, and earth are all subsumed in bitter cherry fruit with lovely purity and unusual elegance across the ... Read More

  • Castello di Ama Merlot Toscana IGT Vigna l'Apparita 1994

    Snoothrank:

    Richer and rounder than some of the newer vintages. Surprisingly bright strawberry flavors. Cherry and even banana. Very fruity for its age. Acids on the finish, with flavors of iron, blood, stone, cigar wrapper and cedar. The acids are beginning to mellow. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Merlot Toscana IGT Vigna l'Apparita 2000

    Snoothrank:

    More age on the nose than the '97 Bellavista showed. A little iodine and cherry. More acidity here - a real puckering acidity. Tart iron laden finish. Cherries and leather apparent. Much more of a strong acidic attack than the Bellavista again - less fatty, leaner. Overly tannic finish Read More

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 1997

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 2001

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Ama Chianti Bellavista 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Bing cherries on the nose. Rich and smooth, really silky. More powerful and much fruitier than the '06 is at the moment. Black cherry and blueberry mainly. Less acidity, but its still there on the finish, mixed with figs. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Sangiovese Blend Chianti Classico DOCG 25th Anniversary 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Nice structure on the nose - leather and cherry dominate. Young and clearly not ready yet, the wine has flavors of tight bitter chocolate, sour cherry. Solid acidity should give it good potential. Finishes on iodine, mint and cherry. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto l'Apparita 1994

    Snoothrank:

    Herbaceous cherry, green pepper and spice aromas. Flavors are super juicy, slightly sweet, with cranberry and cherry, fresh acidity, and a hearty helping of chewy tannins. This wine would love food. Read More
