The Chardonnay "Al Poggio" of the Castello di Ama winery is a soft and elegant white wine produced in Gaiole in Chianti, in the province of Siena, in Tuscany. This label is obtained from Chardonnay grapes in purity from vineyards located between 450 and 500 meters above sea level on hills with north-east / south-west exposure. The vines, grown with the spurred cordon espalier method, are selected clones of Chardonnay rooted cuttings originating from Burgundy which were then planted in Tuscany on soils rich in skeleton characterized by clayey soils with a massive presence of limestone rocks that give the wine that fresh mineral note that makes it very refined. The winery is a family-run business, founded in the seventies by the family of Lorenza Sebasti and Marco Pallanti, today the owner of about 90 hectares of vineyards in one of the most fertile and renowned hills of the whole Chianti area.

Castello di Ama's Chardonnay “Al Poggio” shows a brilliant golden yellow color. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit, tropical fruit and citrus fruit emerge on the nose, including peach, pineapple, banana and orange peel, floral notes of white flowers, woody and candied fruit hints, ending with toasted notes of dried fruit, including hazelnut and almond. In the mouth it is soft, fresh and delicate, characterized by a marked minerality and a long persistence. This Chardonnay from the Castello di Ama winery is a really well made wine, clear, fine and with a very pleasant drinkability.
