Castello di Ama Chianti 'Bellavista' 2011

2011 Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione 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.
 
"Ama's 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista shows the darker, more brooding style of Sangiovese at Ama. Graphite, smoke, tar, licorice, incense and cloves wrap around a core of dark fruit. A wine of gravitas and vertical structure, the 2011 will reward several decades of cellaring. This is an unusually stern wine for the vintage though. Readers will have to be patient to experience the Bellavista at its best." -Antonio Galloni
