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.

95 points Wine Advocate

"Compared to Castello di Ama's other top Gran Selezione expressions, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto la Casuccia offers thick brushstrokes of ripe fruit, spice and crushed stone. Perhaps this wine has less depth compared to the others, but this is only by a tiny fraction. This wine exhibits immediate boldness, suppleness and richness, especially in this warm and exuberant vintage. The wine finishes with dark fruit flavors and firmly structured tannins."

The harvest was on September 18 for Merlot and September 26 for Sangiovese. Fermentation occurred regularly at temperatures between 30 and 3 3Celsius. (86-91F.). The wine was constantly pumped over the cap throughout fermentation and maceration, which lasted 26 days, somewhat less than the average period. The processes assured extraction of polyphenols of excellent quality that were powerful yet elegant. The wine were drained off, malolactic fermentation was induced with the use of a large percentage of barriques.
