Chianti Classico Castello di Ama Vigneto La Casuccia 1997

The La Casuccia vineyard comprises 12.58 hectares, of which some 6 were planted in 1978; the remainder was planted in 2007 at a density of 5,300 vines per hectare.

The elevation ranges from 480 metres to 526 for the vines at Adine. Soils are fairly consistent throughout, predominantly calcareous clay.

The vines are vertically-trained to the single Guyot system in 8.04 hectares and to the open lyre in 4.54.

The vineyard is sub-divided into 17 parcels, all planted to the traditional varieties authorised by the production code. One parcel is planted to Merlot; its wine is produced only in exceptional growing years, and in very limited quantities. The first vintage was bottled in 1985

The Merlot grapes were harvested on 6th September and the Sangiovese on 17th October.

Fermentation was at 30-33°C, with pumpovers throughout the entire process, and maceration lasted 26 days, slightly less than the average.

Most of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barriques. Following assemblage all the wine matured in Allier oak, 40% new and the remainder once-used. The wine was bottled in June 2013.

Deep, very luminous ruby red. Multi-layered, full-volumed nose of fruit, ranging through wild cherry, tobacco leaf, black liquorice, and mint. Equally superb richness and elegance in the mouth, excelling in depth and balance of all components, including the tannins.
