Founded in 1972, Castello di Ama is one of Tuscany’s preeminent estates, renowned for producing wines of finesse and elegance. Situated at 1,574 feet near Gaiole-in-Chianti, this 617 acre estate is owned by husband and wife Marco Pallanti and Lorenza Sebasti. Since 1982, the couple has successfully steered the estate through several major renovations and improvements including a total replanting between 1982-1987, a dramatic increase in plant density to 5000/hectare, the introduction of French varieties and a major upgrade of winemaking equipment. In 2003 Marco was named Oenologist of the Year by Vini d’Italia and the couple continues to build upon their reputation for crafting benchmark Chiantis.

Blackberry and cigar box, with hints of raspberry. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. Drink now. 490 cases made. –JS

The 2004 Chianti Classico La Casuccia (80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot) is a massive, powerful wine. It presents an open-knit, super-ripe nose followed by layers of ripe dark blueberries, violets, licorice and toasted oak flavors on a big, structured frame, with outstanding length and a lingering suggestion of sweetness on the finish. It is the more accessible of the estate’s top two selections in 2004. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
