Castello di Ama winery

The company

Our story

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.

I Vigneti del Castello du Ama hanno un'altitudine compresa tra i 450 metri e 550 metri s.l.m in un raggio che la toponomastica del luogo chiama da sempre con i tradizionali nomi di: Bellavista, San Lorenzo, La Casuccia e Montebuoni.

Our vineyards

The 75 hectares of vineyards surrounding the village at an altitude that ranges between 420 and 527 metres result in characterful wines suitable for long ageing.

“When I offer a taste of my wine, I would like to show in the glass the soil, the grapes and the land that it expresses.”  Marco Pallanti

Il Castello di Ama si trova nel cuore del Chianti Classico, quello storico, al centro della Toscana, fra le province di Firenze e Siena.

Chianti Classico

Castello di Ama is in the historic heart of Chianti Classico, in central Tuscany, between the Florence and Siena provinces, where vineyards and olive groves are edged by woodland in scenery that was depicted in Renaissance artist Benozzo Gozzoli’s Magi Chapel, in Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence.

Dal 1982 Marco Pallanti è Enologo e Direttore Tecnico del Castello di Ama

Our people

The success of Castello di Ama lies with Lorenza Sebasti, daughter of one of the original owners, and winemaker Marco Pallanti. A 40-year labour of love, Lorenza and Marco continue to share the same passion, vision and values.


Castello di Ama combines the soul of the hamlet, the essence of the vineyards, the beauty of the site-specific artwork…
