2015 Castello Di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista
The Bellavista Gran Selezione is next to the L'Apparita the top model of Castello Di Ama. The Bellavista vineyard is 22.82 hectares and the Vigneto Bellavista Chianti Classico has been made since 1978 only in the very best years. After fermentation and pressing, the young wine is transferred to French oak barriques, 40% of which are new, and matures here for 15 months. The wine is deep purple ruby red in color. In the nose aromas of black cherries, red berries, licorice and Virginia tobacco. In the taste palette notes of ripe small black fruit, plum, salmiak and wild mint, which are accompanied by a long lasting mineral aftertaste with ripe tannins and elegant acids.
Is this the most beautiful Chianti Classico ever? James Suckling asks himself this question and ends his assessment with: "Will this prove to be the greatest Chianti Classico ever made?" The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista comes from fruit from one of the most beautiful vineyards of Castello di Ama with wide exposure and plenty of sunshine. The Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista offers an unreal level of intensity and depth and perfectly integrated tannins. of these three single-vineyard Gran Selezione wines (Bellavista, La Casuccia and San Lorenzo), the Vigneto Bellavista is the most complete, but also the most linear and streamlined in terms of mouthfeel. Drink this wine from 2020 and you can safely store it in the cellar until 2040+.
