CASTELLO DI AMA Vigneto Bellavista 2011

Bellavista is a single vineyard wine produced only in the very best years. The Bellavista vineyard comprises 22.82 hectares on an elevated plot with clay and gravel soils. A blend of Sangiovese with small amounts of Malvasia Nera, the wine undergoes a temperature controlled fermentation, pumping over and maceration over a 26 day period to build tannin structure. Following pressing, the wine is transferred to a mix of new and seasoned French oak barriques for 15 months maturation. Bellavista is typically a powerful yet profoundly elegant wine replete with red fruit, savoury earthy forest floor notes and polished tannins, with superb ageing potential.
