Castello di Ama – Haiku
Harvesting of grapes is done by hand, filling in 10 – 12 kilograms crates and abiding an inspection and sorting system for the preparation of the vinification process.
Fermentation of grapes is done individually for each variety in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30–32 °C with constant pumping. It lasted for 25 days for Sangiovese, 25 days for Merlot and 25 days for Cabernet Franc.
After vinification, wine is aged for 12 months in fine-grain barriques then bottled on the 2nd of August, 2015.

Castello di Ama Wine Reviews
Editor-in-Chief and Wine Writer
Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
