“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.

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 Chianti 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Bright and sweet cherry aromas. Super tannic, drying wine with nice warm spice, leather and unripe strawberry flavors. Will be even more lovely in a few years. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 1997

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy, fruity and herbaceous aromas. Flavor is quite juicy, full of luscious strawberry and cherry fruit, spice earth and leather. The acidity gives it a spicy freshness, even after twelve years. Read More

  • Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista 2001

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Ama Chianti Bellavista 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The wine starts with a peppery and spicy nose with hints of cherries. Offering great balance, with strong acids, great fruit, nice complexity and a good rich mouth feel. White pepper on the finish, which is still tight and leathery. Even a little licorice and plums in the finish too. Read More
