Castello di Ama - Tuscany - IGT Chardonnay "Al Poggio" - 2015

 
 
 Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
 
 
 
The white grape varieties traditionally cultivated in the Chianti Classico (Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia Lunga del Chianti) find their best enological expression in the Vinsanto but the strongly calcareous soil and the altitude of the slopes of Ama offer greater possibilities for the production of a great wine White. In 1978, in the Bellavista vineyard, a parcel was set up in Pinot Grigio for 1.44 ha and subsequently in the two-year period 1982-83, other parcels were replanted with Chardonnay clones from Burgundy. Moreover, in 1984, in the area called Al Poggio, we decided to expand the area for this variety with the plant of another 4 hectares and in order to obtain a wine of great structure we chose the form of open Lira breeding. The first vintage produced was 1988. Since 2008, we have started replanting obsolete plots and currently the company has 2.1 ha in Pinot Grigio and 5.5 ha in Chardonnay.
