The Chianti Classico AMA first saw the light of day in 2010 and was launched in 2014. After the harvest, the first fermentation of the wine takes place in steel vats for 25 days. The wine is then matured in French oak barriques for 11 months, after which the wine is bottled. In the bottle, the wine matures even further in the cellars of the domain. The Chianti Classico from Castello Di Ama has a ruby red color with hints of cedar and dark cherry on the nose. Elegant and refined in the mouth and the taste is full, red fruit, with nice not too heavy tannins and a long fruity fresh aftertaste.

At the start of the Castello di Ama wine company in 1972, the best opportunities for planting Sangiovese grapes were sought. Not only were the vineyards looked at, but also the possibilities of pruning, ripening of the grapes and of course also in the winery. Over the years, it has been possible to improve the clones step by step. The vineyards are located at an altitude between 390 and 450 meters. The soil is heavy clay with a lot of gravel and pebbles.

Parker writes: "The Chianti Classico Ama is a terrific wine that opens to a mid-weight feel but produces an enormously expressive bouquet"
