First release:

Ama produced almost entirely from Sangiovese grapes, was added to the estate’s wines with the 2010 vintage and the introduction of the Gran Selezione quality criterion in Chianti Classico. This wine is made from vines planted at high density (5,200 vines/hectare). The grapes are hand-harvested from vines that are 10-12 years old on average. Fruity and harmonic, the voluptuous Ama Chianti Classico express all the elegance of the estate’s wines.

Climate: The beginning of 2019 experienced cold temperatures and considerable differences in temperature between day and night. After snowfall in January, February was mild and temperatures began to rise. Early spring was quite cold and rainy and this effect the flowering with a reduction in clusters per vine. The summer, warm and dry, arrived in the mid of June. The harvest started on September 5th and finished on October 10th.

Tasting Notes: Ruby red colour with vermillion nuances the nose is fruity with red fresh fruits, cherry and raspberry. The taste is elegant and harmonic with well-balanced spicy notes already at the first impact

The Grape
A black grape widely grown in Central Italy and the main component of Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as well as being the sole permitted grape for the famed Brunello di Montalcino.

It is a high yielding, late ripening grape that performs best on well-drained calcareous soils on south-facing hillsides. For years it was blighted by poor clonal selection and massive overcropping - however since the 1980s the quality of Sangiovese-based wines has rocketed upwards and they are now some of the most sought after in the world.
It produces wines with pronounced tannins and acidity, though not always with great depth of colour, and its character can vary from farmyard/leather nuances through to essence of red cherries and plums. In the 1960s the advent of Super Tuscans saw bottlings of 100% Sangiovese wines, as well as the introduction of Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the most famous being Tignanello.
