|Producer||CASTELLO DI AMA|
Castello di Ama is an ancient estate located in the hills of Chianti, in Tuscany, Italy. It is situated near the town of Gaiole in Chianti, in the province of Siena. The castle is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and olive groves and is renowned for the production of high-quality wines. Castello di Ama is known for its production of Chianti Classico, a traditional red wine from the Chianti region. The estate spans over 250 hectares, with approximately 90 hectares dedicated to vineyards.
Ama, produced almost entirely from Sangiovese grapes, was added to the estate’s wines with the 2010 vintage and the introduction of Gran Selezione quality criterion in Chianti Classico. This wine is made from vines planted at high density (5,200 vines / hectare). The grapes are hand-harvested from vines that are 10-12 years old on average. Fruity and harmonic, the voluptuous Ama Chianti Classico expresses all the elegance of the estate’s wines.
