At Castello di Ama, one of the great properties of the region, the decision was reached to make their Gran Selezione a remarkable offering. It's because of this that they decided to use all of their best single-vineyard fruit to create the San Lorenzo Gran Selezione. The San Lorenzo takes the best qualities of the remarkable 2013 vintage and adds classic refinement, which this property is known for. This is a Chianti Classico of the highest order which will thrill Tuscan wine lovers now yet also mature beautifully in the cellar. ✦ Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo 2013 JS 95 » $50 "...super silky with a gorgeous density and precision that gives great polish to the tannins..."
