Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo 2010
A ruby red that is at the same time luminous, lively, and intense. The bouquet is composed of wild red berry fruit. A gorgeous, aromatic marriage of fruit and spice mark an impressive attack, in a wine that is overall refined and stylish.

Wine SpectatorOffers a combination of power and elegance, with a racy feel. Notes of wild cherry, strawberry and rose, with leafy, woodsy flavors, permeate this driving red. The finish is long, but this needs time to shed the tannins. Well-defined from start to finish. Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Merlot. Best from 2017 through 2030. 8,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateCompared to the 2011 vintage, the 2010 Chianti Classico Vigneto Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is a wine of good depth and focus thanks to the cooler vintage. The bouquet shows standard Chianti Classico aromas of bright fruit and cherry with offbeat tones of Pecorino cheese rind and white chocolate thrown into the mix. In the mouth, it shows extraction and power.
