From The TV Show: Castello di Ama in Tuscany

Castello di Ama produces the most famous wine in TuscanyChianti Classico, a locally protected vintage made of 100% Sangiovese grapes. Chianti Classico has undergone a renaissance in recent years, thanks in part to winemakers like Lorenza Pallanti. Pallanti is not only a winemaker but a patron of art, welcoming modern artists to her vineyard to erect stunning, fanciful and moving works. Castello di Ama is open daily for tours and tastings; reserve in advance. For more information, visit:
