Description

Ama is small hamlet nestled among gentle hills, in the commune of Gaiole in Chianti, in the province of Siena. At some 500 metres’ elevation, it lies in the heart of the Chianti Classico storico zone, where vineyards and olive groves and woods weave intricate intersecting patterns among themselves. The winery, begun in 1972 as a result of the love of four families from Rome, currently comprises some 250 hectares, of which 90 are in vines and 40 in olives trees, growing at an average altitude of 480 metres. Annual production, exclusively from our estate vineyards, amounts to about 300-350,000 bottles, or some 3,500-4,000 bottles per hectare. The winery standard-bearer is ‘Castello di Ama a wine produced by a rigorous selection of sangiovese grapes from the most outstanding vineyard parcels.

In 1997-2000 a further 15 hectares of new clones of Sangiovese were planted, bringing the total vineyards to 90 hectares. Not all the Sangiovese planted in the
