Castello di Ama

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Surprisingly dark on the nose with leather, turned earth, undergrowth, some roast… sun dried tomatoes. After a while a fresh orange zest & flowery note emerges to add contrast. Barely any cherry or red fruit. Dumb phase? Queer bottle? And yet - intriguing!
On the palate nicely structured and with fresh acidity. Love the quality of tannins - fine, juicy yet firm. Savoury, just a touch rustic, loads of umami flavour here.
Def. a food wine, and a very nice one, too!
Having this with some pasta, but this begs for a Bisteca Fiorentina!

Monteleccio Toscana IGT Sangiovese 2020

Time! Must give this wine time! It is so tight straight from the bottle that judging it then is unfair. After hours it opens into a beautiful Sangiovese: cherry, tobacco, and violets. — 23 days ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2021

Great wine but I did expect even more. Decanted for 3 hours. Still a little tight. Cherry and plum. Earthy (chalk/slate). Some violets. Just a hint of something more herbaceous like tobacco. Finishes shorter than it should. Tannins medium. — 15 days ago
