Castello di Ama San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2013

Siena, Tuscany, ItalyCastello di Ama comes out of Gaiole, near the southern edge of Chianti Classico. The wine is made from a mix of ten year and older vineyard blocks. The style is Italian rustic elegance. Pipe tobacco and ripe cherries greet the nose with earthy forest floor notes. There’s an obvious density of red fruit on the attack. The tannins are rich and fine-grained, and the palate is at first sweet but quickly subdued by a savoury, plummy/cherry fruit. Well balanced and poised to live in the bottle for more than a decade. Selezione rules state all grapes must be produced by the winery itself and the wine cannot be sold before 30 months after harvest.Tasted: 25 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 53.99 BCLS Producer: Castello di AmaDistributors: Stile Brands
