92+ pts - Antonio Galloni
Sangiovese 80%, 20% Malvesia Nera, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir
The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Ama is striking. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices caress the palate in this fleshy, generous Chianti Classico. The radiance of the fruit is suggestive of a warm year, but the tannic profile, medium body and overall structure is more similar to that of a colder vintage. In 2009 Ama did not bottle their single vineyard selections; all of the best fruit went into the Castello di Ama bottling. Last tasted Jun 2012, Drink now-2020.
