Castello di Ama’s 65.38 hectares of specialised vineyards, officially enrolled in the Chianti Classico Register, are located at elevations between 390 and 530 metres in calcareous-clay, pebble-rich soils. Part of the vineyards were planted between 1974 and 1978, at an average density of 3,000 vines per hectare, while newer plantings at a density of 5,300 vines per hectare, starting in 1996 and continuing to the present date, replace the outdated vineyards.The vines are vertically trained, to the open lyre pruned to the Guyot system, and to spurred cordon.The varieties, grafted onto rootstock 420, are 80% Sangiovese and 20% Malvasia Nera, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.Details Growing season weather conditions February experienced some heavy rainfalls, while March was mild, with vine-weep occurring early in the month. April was cold and quite rainy, May average, and June fairly wet. The stages of vine development proceeded along seasonal averages. The high heat and dry conditions of July kept the grapes healthy; these conditions continued until the rains in the first week in September. Sunny weather returned, and held through October and the entire harvest period. Overall, a good year for sound quality and good ripeness levels in the grapes.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.
