Castello di Ama Chianti Classico 2013
Appears a lively, dark-ruby flecked red. Classic Chianti Classico di Ama nose, an elegant melding of well-ripened wild red berry with subtle spice. Beautiful integration and balance of all its components, even in its youth, including a crisp and acidity and silky tannins, with a long-lingering, berry-laden finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chianti Classico Ama is a special wine and one that I enthusiastically recommend, given its affordable price and highly approachable style. This pretty Sangiovese-based wine opens to vibrant tones of dark cherry, spice, wet earth and pressed flowers. The wine is expressive, confident and articulate especially in terms of its varietal voice.
Wine EnthusiastWild berry, moist soil and a hint of menthol lead the way. The silky, easy-drinking palate shows polish and charm, offering juicy wild cherry, white pepper and a hint of anise alongside sleek tannins and bright acidity.
Wine SpectatorPretty black cherry, blackberry and black pepper flavors are framed by a vibrant structure in this medium-bodied red. Crisp finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
