Sour cherry, hint of rose petals and savory earth. Nice acidity.

I wanted to like this more given the other wines I've had from Castello di Ama. Lacked both structure and complexity. Lots of plumminess and cocoa, but not much else going on--

Cleansing front of the mouth tannins, cherry, earth, lots of concentration and good acid, pretty damn good Sangiovese. Where's the pasta??

This was before the 1982 sale of Castello. Little info, but this is pre-replanting of mid-80s, very pastoral expression. Eye opening Tuscan gem.

Pretty rockin little Chianti Classico. Earthy, loads of character. A real gem.
