2017 vintage.
50 % Sangiovese, 25 % Cabernet Franc, 25 % Merlot.
Castello di Ama is 12 miles north of Sienna in the hills of Gaiole in the heart of Chianti Classico. Tuscan Cabernet Franc and Merlot do not get the fanfare and accolades they deserve.
Bright cherry, underbrush and black currants on the nose.
Flavours of dark cherry, plum, mocha, walnuts and tobacco.
It finishes long with a freshness yet ripe fruit.
This bottle was gifted to me by Lorenza Sebasti when she came for dinner at our restaurant.
She and her husband own Castello di Ama winery. Lorenza is a lovely woman to spend an evening with enjoying good food, great wine and stimulating conversation.

Just one of the best Tuscan wines. Cherry flower at ots best. Elegance and deep taste. From relatively young wine grape-wines. In an ideal scenario, drink it “on site” at the Castello. One of the nicest places to stay - restaurant as well as 5 rooms hotel.
