Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

$44.99

95 points                                                          A fantastic new Chiantico Classico from one of Italy's best producers, and an amazing buy for the price. Limited. 95 Points James Suckling:  "Tight and super silky with a gorgeous density and precision that gives great polish to the tannins. Makes them almost dusty. Lots of subtle dark berry, mineral and spice. Drink or hold." 93+ Robert Parker: "The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo flaunts its importance. It boasts confidence and an outward-looking personality that comes as a refreshing surprise. Like all Gran Selezione wines, it is released 30 months after January 1st following the harvest. This expression of Sangiovese shows depth and power with ripe fruit tones of cherry and forest berry. I am delighted and surprised by the elegant and soft nature of the mature tannins. The wine’s finish offers bright freshness with layers of dark fruit, wet earth and forest floor."  91 Points Wine Spectator:  "Shows fine purity to the cherry, strawberry and leather notes, with a hint of licorice. Ripe, sweet fruit and a juicy texture collide as this plays out on the long finish. Drink now through 2025."

This was better than expected for 14 being an off year in Toscana - Ama blends their cru grapes in with their intro wines in non excellent years, thus I think the over achievement for this young Classico - roses and dirt. Yum.
