    "Montebuoni" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2018

    Normally, the Sangiovese grapes from the 14-hectare single vineyard are mainly used in the Ama and San Lorenzo. With the 2018 harvest, Lorenza and Marco decided to vinify a small quantity separately - and so the 2018 vintage gave rise for the first time to the Riserva, now released for sale in very small quantities (600 bottles for the German market).

    Deep dark ruby red with violet reflections. Extroverted bouquet of brunberry, raspberry and redcurrant, plus notes of crushed gravel, tobacco and traces of young leather. Very powerful and beautifully textured on the palate, the various layers of primary fruit only gradually fanning out, the wood pleasantly receding into the background. Finely granulated tannin and a well-integrated acidity flank the very harmonious red into an elegant, long final. There is a lot to like here, for us it is once again a typical Ama wine: racy, powerful and elegant! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright black cherry and blackberry flavors highlight this round, fruity red. Lively acidity and fine-grained tannins are integrated and lend support. A touch of earth graces the finish." Wine Spectator

    "A brand-new wine for Castello di Ama, Montebuoni comes from a 14.5-hectare vineyard purchased and replanted in 1997. Adjacent to Vigna Bellavista, it sits between 420 and 500 metres above sea level with a northwest to southeast exposure. Immediately inviting ripe cherry and plums are punctuated by a parade of fresh fennel, mint, violet and allspice. Yet the palate is still tightly wound, with grainy tannins taking hold, and very racy acidity on the finish. If this develops as articulately as the nose suggests, it will be a beauty." Decanter
