    L’Apparita was the first single varietal Merlot produced in Tuscany and it has been an iconic wine since its initial harvest in 1985. Two parcels at the top of the Bellavista vineyard comprise the L’Apparita cru. The open lyre training system and the predominately clay soil make this cru a crown jewel in world winemaking. The Merlot grapes are hand-harvested and vinified using native yeasts in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30/33°. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to oak barriques of fine grain, 50% of which were new and the rest were second pass where is matures for approximately 14months.

    THE WINERY


    The Winery: Castello di Ama
    Castello di Ama is in the historic heart of Chianti Classico, in central Tuscany, between the Florence and Siena provinces. Beauty and uniqueness enticed this family, originally from Rome, to Ama in the early Seventies. Bound by their love of wine, they replanted the vineyards and introduced new production methods, building a new winery with the end goal of producing Chianti Classico and returning Ama to its former glory.
