This winery has been a leading light in the renaissance of the Chianti Classico region and should be firmly on everyone’s fine wine radar. Castello di Ama is a must-have for anyone seeking out the finest wines made in Italy.
In fact, San Lorenzo Chianti Classico 2010 was ranked #6 in Wine Spectator’s “Best Wines of the World” list in 2014.
The San Lorenzo vineyards are some of the highest in Chianti. The calcareous soil gives the wines a distinct minerality which complements their finesse, freshness, delineation of fruit and beguiling aromas. These wines also have great ageing potential.
Depending on the vintage, Castello di Ama produces the additional single-site cuvées of "Bellavista" and "Casuccia", but in 2010 all the fruit from these top sites went into the San Lorenzo. The crème de la crème of the fruit is right here!
