Backwards and traditional in style, this red will require some time to find equilibrium and reveal all its facets. Shows purity to the core of cherry, currant, leather and earth flavors, finishing firm and long. Best from 2021 through 2036. 1,200 cases imported.
It is hard to go wrong with Tuscan wines from the classic 2016 vintage, and this fact is apparent even with an entry-level wine such as the 2016 Chianti Classico Ama. Both the 2015 and the 2016 vintages are excellent, with 2015 showing more muscle power and 2016 showing higher elegance. This beautiful wine is fresh and bright in delivery with red cherry, plum and wild berry. The wine comes alive in the mouth, thanks to that crisp acidity. Fruit for this wine comes from the estate's younger vines that are up to eight years old.
