The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Ama is going through a very beautiful phase right now. It was quite Burgundian and refined from barrel, then shut down considerably after bottling. Today, it shows lovely inner perfume and sweetness. The cool, restrained personality of the year comes through, but there is also plenty of understated richness in the glass. A kick of Sangiovese acidity and tannin frames the finish. This is a gorgeous wine that could very well surprise on the upside. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2020.

This leans toward the herbal side of the flavor spectrum, yet also offers black currant, cherry and bitter almond, allied to a lively frame. Firm and long on the finish. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2014 through 2022.
