A deep purple-red with ruby highlights. Fruity aromas of raspberry, blackberry and fruit of the forest, with spicy notes of wild herbs, pepper and tobacco. The varieties are distinct on the palate with full mouthfeel. The wine is inherently elegant with organic freshness that develops into a silky finish.

A blend of mostly Sangiovese with Cabernet Franc and Merlot in supporting roles, the Castello di Ama 2018 Haiku is a very interesting and somewhat unexpected expression that delivers big richness and lovely concentration, yet the fruit is never too ripe. In fact, it might be a tad underripe in this vintage that saw a few cooler weeks in early summer and some rain toward the end of the growing season. In all, it shows careful balance with an elegant, medium-bodied approach that is propped up by fresh and lively fruit. There are some Cabernet Franc-driven aromas of black olive tapenade. Like the other wines in this portfolio, Haiku is distinctively Mediterranean in personality. - 95 - Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
