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.
The 2016 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 2016 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 mouthfeel. The 2015 was already beautiful, but as with many Tuscan wines, 2016 beats everything and it is not surprising that this wine has received these high scores. Drink this wine from 2022 and you can safely keep it in the cellar until 2040+.
