2013 Chianti Classico, Vigneto Bellavista, Castello di Ama


$185.00 per Bottle


3 Bottles




"Complex and inviting aromas of sweet cherry, leather and spice lead to a core of cherry and strawberry fruit, singed by tobacco and earthy, woodsy accents. Firm and long, with a refreshing finish. Best from 2019 through 2028. 36 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Black cherry, plum, graphite, smoke, dried Mediterranean and crushed rocks are front and center in the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista. Searing tannins give the 2013 much of its energy and vibrancy. A dark, brooding yet austere, mid-weight wine in the best of the Bellavista tradition, the 2013 is going to need at least a few years to come into its own. Today, the 2013 Bellavista is especially forbidding. It won't be ready to drink for a good handful of years, and even that may be optimistic." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"A fine red with blueberry, lemon and mineral character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh and very clean finish. Linear and focused. Structured. Better in a year or two but stylish now." JamesSuckling.com

"Wild, almost feral nose – not tight and concentrated. Big and quite edgy and powerful. Lots of tannin currently. Marked compost notes and damp leaves." JancisRobinson.com
