Castello di Ama Chianti 'Bellavista' 2006

2006 Chianti Classico DOCG 750ml

Description

The Bellavista cru is not produced every year, but only in exceptional vintages and in limited quantities. Bellavista is the name of this special vineyard. Its first vintage was in 1978. The vineyard is made up of primarily clay soils and sits quite high in the Chianti Classico zone peaking at 530m above sea level. It was planted between 1967 and 1975.
 
"The 2006 Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista boasts compelling inner sweetness, great power and huge overall structure. Dark cherries, flowers, licorice, tobacco and incense are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in this explosive, totally seductive Bellavista. The 2006 needs time to fully integrate its French oak, but it is shaping up to be a jewel. It is quite clear from this tasting the 2006 is evolving at a glacial pace. Readers who can be patient will be amply rewarded. -Antonio Galloni
