Lorenza and Marco Pallanti of Castello di Ama have been making wines in Tuscany since the 1970’s situated around the hamlet of Alma, which perches at 450-550 metres above sea level. Regarded for their elegance and freshness, allied to their natural intensity and depth, Castello di Alma has, as Galloni states, “crafted some of the most riveting wines in Tuscany... simply put, there are few estates in Italy at this level.”

Vigneto Bellavista uses 80% Sangiovese, with the final 20% being made up of local variety Malvasia Nera and is farmed from a single vineyard very rich in clay. It is made only in exceptional years and is aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak so as not to overpower the aromatics. The first vintage was 1982 - it has been made just 10 times since the turn of the millennium.

What the critics say:

98/100Antonio Galloni

"The 2020 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista is outrageously beautiful. Graphite, crushed rocks, lavender, menthol and juniper berry all race out of the glass. A dollop of Malvasia Nera adds striking savory/earthy intensity. Black fruit, gravel, incense and cloves build over time, framed by potent Bellavista tannins that need time to soften."

OUR GROWERS

Castello Di Ama

Castello di Ama's origins trace back to Etruscan times, a testament to the enduring connection between this land and human creativity. Ama was owned by the Firidolfi family during the Holy Roman Empire. The medieval castle that once graced these grounds fell during the Aragonese invasions in the 15th century. In the early 1700s, new villas rose from the same stones, marking the birth of the Castello di Ama estate.
