Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Riserva Montebuoni 2019 750ml
Rich, boasting cherry, plum, earth, leather and sanguine notes_read more
Wine Spectator 91 Points: Rich, boasting cherry, plum, earth, leather and sanguine notes. Firm, yet the fruit holds its own through the lively, persistent finish. Fine balance and energy overall. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2027. 300 cases imported.
Wine Advocate 94 Points: This is a new wine with the inaugural 2018 vintage introduced last year. The Castello di Ama 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Montebuoni draws its fruit from a vineyard site that sits parallel to Vigneto Bellavista about one kilometer over and enjoys similar exposures. The estate felt that it needed to fill a gap in the portfolio between the entry-level wines and the top-shelf Gran Selezioni. That's where the Riserva Montebuoni comes in. This 15-hectare site was purchased by Marco Pallanti in 1997, and a lot of work went into moving earth and preparing the poor, clay-based terrain for planting. These results show beautifully concentrated fruit over a medium to full-bodied approach with lingering smoke, blackberry and sweet tobacco.
James Suckling 95 Points: Very subtle aromas of dark berries, licorice and violets. Really floral and bright. Medium-bodied with very fine tannins that integrate beautifully into the wine. Such a lovely and sophisticated mouth-feel to this. Drinkable already, but better in two or three years.
Vinous 93 Points The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Montebuoni is a dark, sensual wine. Black cherry, plum, spice, licorice and dried herbs all take shape in a virile, layered Riserva that is a terrific bridge into the Gran Seleziones in the range. I would give this a few years in bottle.
