The Haiku from the famous winery from Tuscany is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and now belongs to the list of famous super-tuscans. The Haiku has a deep ruby red color and has a very complex book of red cherries, flowers, coffee, mint and spices. In the mouth this medium/full bodied wine is very pleasant with a nice attack of ripe tannins and refined acids. The wine is well balanced and elegant. Like all of the Castello di Ama wines, the Haiku also has firm tannins that give this wine great aging potential. Certainly as good as the more famous Tignanello (Antinori) but much more affordable in price. The wine has been awarded a 95/100 points by Parker and has a drinking window until 2038.

The vineyard is located in Gaiole in Chianti at an altitude between 390-530m above sea level. The soil of the vineyard is rich in lime and clay. The fermentation and maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks for 25 days, malolactic fermentation in barriques followed by an aging of 11-13 months in French barriques (30% new, 70% 2nd-3rd passage) The name Haiku comes from an original, traditional Japanese Haiku, which is based on simplicity. The label features a knight styled by Guidoriccio da Fogliano, which has its origins in Simone Martini's fresco, rooted in Italian tradition.
