This inaugural vintage of Montebuoni is a new, exclusive Chianti Classico Riserva from Castello di Ama. Deep ruby red color with purple nuances. The nose is fruit forward, carrying scents of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry and currant. Well balanced, refined and harmonic taste, with a long-lasting aromatic profile. A pure expression of elegance. Blend: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

Here's an exciting discovery from Castello di Ama. An inaugural vintage, the 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Montebuoni sources its fruit from a vineyard site planted next to the celebrated Bellavista parcel in 1997. Showing a classic Tuscan spirt that is playful and mischievous, this wine is beautiful and bright with loads of ripe and soft fruit flavors, spanning from cherry to plum and violets to potting soil. The wine is medium-bodied and lean, but it shows enough intensity and freshness to make a really nice and lasting impact on the palate. I can recommend a solid 10-year drinking window for this cheerful bottle. 2021-2028.

A new wine in this range, the 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Montebuoni is effusive, deep and powerful. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather and dried herbs all open in the glass. Bright saline notes extend the finish nicely. The 2018 offers a compelling balance of fruit richness and energy.

A brand-new wine for Castello di Ama, Montebuoni comes from a 14.5-hectare vineyard purchased and replanted in 1997. Adjacent to Vigna Bellavista, it sits between 420 and 500 metres above sea level with a northwest to southeast exposure. Immediately inviting ripe cherry and plums are punctuated by a parade of fresh fennel, mint, violet and allspice. Yet the palate is still tightly wound, with grainy tannins taking hold, and very racy acidity on the finish. If this develops as articulately as the nose suggests, it will be a beauty.

Bright black cherry and blackberry flavors highlight this round, fruity red. Lively acidity and fine-grained tannins are integrated and lend support. A touch of earth graces the finish. Drink now.
