Variety: Sangiovese and Merlot
Castello di Ama sits in the heart of Chianti. It is everything you’d imagine the heart of Tuscany being: olive groves, rolling hills, and wooded areas with a sense of fairytale. The estate is operated by the husband and wife team of Marco Pallanti and Lorenza Sebasti. They have put forth serious efforts to not only replant the vineyards, but have additionally upgraded all their facilities over the last 25 years. It is with these endeavors that Castello di Ama is able to put themselves among the high ranks of Chianti producers.
“Ama” is a newer wine that began with the vintage of 2010. What sets it apart is the new Sangiovese clone and the usage of the best modern viticulture technology. The fruit is sourced from four different estate vineyards with an average age of just 8-10 years. The blend is most all Sangiovese supplemented with 4% Merlot. The wine ages in oak barrels that have been used once prior for twelve months.
