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.

 Wine Advocate 94 points (Aug 2013)
Stunning as usual, the 2009 L’Apparita (100% Merlot) starts off slow but builds steady momentum and intensity. This is a seamless and beautifully integrated expression that sees fine contrast between acidity, structure and fruity extract. The wine is still tight, so give it time to complete its bottle evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

An elegant, Bordeaux-like style, offering cherry, black currant, cedar and floral notes. Balanced and harmonious, this needs a little time to absorb the moderate tannins. A hint of orange zest graces the finish. Merlot. Best from 2015 through 2024. 1,050 cases made. –BS
