Castello Di Ama Al Poggio
Ama was owned by the Firidolfi family during the Holy Roman Empire. The castle, which stands in the denomination, was probably destroyed in the fifteenth century during the Aragonese invasions in the Chianti area.
The predominately chalky soil and the altitude of the Ama slopes have set the scene for an extraordinary Chardonnay-led white wine since 1988. Al Poggio conveys the opulence of the grape’s distinctive personality imbued with freshness.
"The 2013 Al Poggio is a pure expression of Chardonnay that opens to beautiful mineral notes that are drying, etched and utterly elegant. There are touches of underbrush and wild sage, but the wine presents a solid core of yellow fruit and peach at its center. Give it a few minutes in the glass and the wine evolves and opens in a slow and steady fashion." 90 pts, Monica Larner, WA
