Beginning in 1978, certain parcels were identified as possessing outstanding soil and microclimates due to extensive research into the terroir of the Castello di Ama vineyards. 1982 was Marco Pallanti’s first harvest. Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista has always set the standard for the fine wines of Castello di Ama. A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera, the wine fully conveys its distinctive personality with the Malvasia Nera aromas, which lend a floral and intriguing character. Alongside the beauty of the bouquet, this wine is essentially centred on the finesse and elegance of the palate and “that subtle alternation between muscular power and grace”.
