“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

    Wine review by liolik

  • I would like to buy a case of wine that we could cellar for about 20 years. My daughter was born in 2006, and we would like to cellar a wine until her wedding. We would like to keep costs to a minimum, but I do realize that quality does have its price. Our tastes tend to change over time, but the last couple of years we have taken a liking to th...

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 1990


    The nose showed vibrant red fruits, florist shop, leather and potpourri. On the palate, I found dried strawberry and spice. This wine somehow came across as young and full of life. It was a pleasure to taste and should continue to develop for many years to come. Read More

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


    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


    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


    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


    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
