Castello di Ama Haiku 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Haiku is fabulous, ln fact, the 2018 might be the best vintage yet, as it has a bit more resonance and persistence than some of the earlier editions. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and spice build into the resonant finish. 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Drinking window: 2023-2033. 95 points

Lorenza Sebasti and Marco Pallanti showed me a brilliant set of new releases during my most recent visit. The Ama wines are often showy when young, but they only reveal their true potential after a number of years in bottle. These are quite simply some of the most singular expressions of Chianti Classico readers will find. I was especially struck by the sublime magnificent 100% Merlot L’Apparita.”
