Castello di Ama - Chianti 'La Casuccia' 2011 750ml
2011 Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione 750ml
The La Casuccia cru is not produced every year, but only in exceptional vintages and in limited quantities. La Casuccia is the name of this vineyard and it is their oldest planted between 1964-1975. Its first vintage was in 1985.
"A wine of pure femininity and grace, the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto La Casuccia is wonderfully fleshy and radiant in the glass. Rose petal, sweet red cherry, tobacco, mint and spices meld together as this effortless, supple wine shows off its undeniably appealing personality. Sweet, silky tannins wrap around a super-expressive finish laced with knock-out aromatics. The 2011 is firing on all cylinders today." -Antonio Galloni
