Castello di Ama - Chianti 'La Casuccia' 2013 750ml
2013 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.
"The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto La Casuccia is soft, open-knit and succulent. Silky tannins wrap around a core of dark red cherry, plum, rose petal mint and sweet spices. The Casuccia is the most sensual and racy of the Ama wines today. It should drink well with minimal cellaring. Once again, the purity of the fruit is striking. The creamy, explosive finish is a thing of beauty. The second time I tasted the 2013 one word came to mind: elation." -Antonio Galloni
