The Chianti Classico Vigneto La Casuccia (Sangiovese, Merlot) has a deep purplish red color. The La Casuccia reveals astonishing clarity and freshness with black cherries, violets, minerals and sweet spices. This dense, richly-structured wine has a dazzling richness and elegance along with breathtaking clarity and precision. Tones of leather, smoke, tar and liquorice linger in the long, intense aftertaste. Expected duration: 2015-2026. The La Casuccia vintage is one of the most beautiful Chaintis and is the top wine of Castello Di Ama.

The Casuccia vineyard is located in Gaiole in the Chianti region at an altitude of 480-520 meters. The vineyard is 12.5 hectares in size and was planted between 1964 and 1975. The merlot grape is harvested in the second half of September, the sangiovese follows early October. The fermentation and maceration is done in stainless steel tanks for 25 days followed by malolactic fermentation in barriques. The aging takes place in French barriques and then at least 12 months in the bottle before the wine is released.
