Ama takes its name from a small borgo, or agricultural hamlet, nestled in the hills at an altitude of almost 500 metres. Five centuries ago, it was the hub of a florid farming and winemaking business overseen by a group of local families. Castello di Ama , the winery, was founded in the 1970s by a group of families who had fallen under the spell of this magical spot. They set themselves the task of reviving Ama’s past glories and of producing a Chianti Classico that would rank among the world’s most prestigious wines.
Colour: Deep, impenetrable crimson with violet nuances. Red berries, blackberries; spice, black peppercorns and juniper. A balsamic note completes the aromatic profile of this wine. Extremely stylish, velvety and mouthfilling, yet powerful, with silky, delicate tannins. Decidedly fresh-tasting, endlessly lingering.
