2008 Chianti Classico from Tuscany.

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva of Italian Castello di Ama exhibits a ruby-tinted bright and intense colour. It gives off small, wild red berry and liquorice aromas. A very beautiful aromatic pairing with red berries and spices marks the attack on the palate. This 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva then lingers in an elegant and very distinguished style

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Ama is going through a very beautiful phase right now. It was quite Burgundian and refined from barrel, then shut down considerably after bottling. Today, it shows lovely inner perfume and sweetness. The cool, restrained personality of the year comes through, but there is also plenty of understated richness in the glass. A kick of Sangiovese acidity and tannin frames the finish. This is a gorgeous wine that could very well surprise on the upside. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
