    "San Lorenzo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

    Every year the San Lorenzo is the result of the best grapes from the 4 classic Ama vineyards. Full bouquet of graphite, mint and black cherry. A lot of character and structure on the palate, with all the elegance that only the best Sangiovese brings to the glass. Striking tannins promise a fantastic potential for maturation! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Only 3000 bottles were produced: Nose of cherries and blossoms, enveloped by herbal and sandalwood notes; in the mouth pithy, much cut, still very youthful, but fine-grained tannins. Elegant." Vinum

    "Dark glowing ruby red. Deep and dark fruity nose, also spicy, of black pepper, dried rose petals, dark chocolate, blackberries and cassis. Hearty and exciting palate, delicate spice, lots of pressure and full body, long finish." Falstaff

    "Lustrous mid ruby. Subtle spice and stone nose. Concentrated sweet fruit and ripe, grainy tannins in equal proportion with subtle, integrated acidity. Great length. Deserves more age." Jancis Robinson

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Ama San Lorenzo is a blend taken from Ama's four core estate vineyards. Black cherry, graphite, sage, mint, juniper berries and licorice give the San Lorenzo a distinctly dark, brooding profile to match its powerful feel. The big tannins need time to soften, but there is certainly plenty to look forward to. Stylistically, San Lorenzo is closest to Bellavista, with which it shares a decidedly somber feel. This is such a gorgeous wine." Vinous

    "This is very polished and refined with chocolate, walnut and berry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Licorice and berry undertones. Balanced, as always." James Suckling

    "San Lorenzo is the most representative wine of Castello di Ama. Rather than a single vineyard, it's a selection across all four of the estate's sites from more mature vines with an average age of 20-25 years old. Winter mint, anise and tobacco are laced through the wine, mingling with vanilla nuances. The fruit is dense, dark and powerful in the mouth but there's a plushness on the mid-palate that lends a seductive edge. Magnificent velvety tannins keep it all in check while the finishes lingers graciously." Decanter

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is immediately more inky and balsamic in terms of aromas. As soon as you lift the wine to your nose, you get pretty tones of blackberry, cassis, rosemary essence, licorice and a touch of medicinal herb. I love when Sangiovese produces those elegant aromas, and for that reason, this wine stands tall among the three single-vineyard expressions from Marco Pallanti and Castello di Ama. It shows fiber, richness and lasting structure with a very well-managed quality of tannins." Robert Parker

    "Offers stunning aromas of black cherry, blackberry and violet, with ripe, sweet fruit on the palate, shaded by iron, earth and tobacco elements. Supple yet well-structured, this should come together soon. Shows terrific harmony and length." Wine Spectator

    "This opens with aromas of black- and red-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, tilled earth and a whiff of new leather. Elegant and taut, the palate shows tension, verve and finesse, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and hints of French oak. It's balanced, with polished, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity." Wine Enthusiast
