A medieval hamlet on the top of a hill 500 meters above sea level, in the territory of Gaiole in Chianti, in the province of Siena, flanking two magnificent late 18th-century villas, a modern winemaking facility was built, a cellar deeply respectful of a magical landscape that evokes Benozzo Gozzoli’s frescoes.
Marco Pallanti, winemaker since 1982, and his wife, Lorenza Sebasti, CEO of the winery, shape the innate characteristics of the land in their own unique style, clearly expressed in Ama’s wine. Winemaking at Ama abandons the unexamined methods of the past and resists the current technological excesses. Our winemaker’s challenge is to make wine as a spontaneous offspring of the marriage of earth, sun, and vine.
In Ama is conducted an integrated traditional agriculture. The use of products is limited to the needs, being among the first to collaborate with the University of Florence.
Vinification in a traditional way using sulphites in winemaking in biological parameters. Only using indigenous yeasts, no type of allergen and animal product.
