Intense purple red with ruby-red nuances
Fruity (fruits of the forest, such as raspberry and blackcurrants), spicy (pepper, wild herbs and tobacco)
Good attack with a clear identity of the grape varieties. The wine is intrinsically elegant and natural freshness
The first vintage of haiku was in 2009 and the wine is the blend of three grape varieties: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. During the planting of the second section of Montebuoni vineyard, completed in 2001, we decided to experiment with the renowned international variety, Cabernet Franc, which has never been used in Ama before. We carried out a careful analysis of the soil and the climate and we realized that Cabernet Franc really would have given good results. In 2001 we planted on two small parcels, identified by the estate’s land register numbers 84 and 85, respectively of 1,47 ha and 0,47 ha, for a total surface of 2 hectares with the clone 214, - a popular variety in Bordeaux for its production of cellarable wines (“vins-de-garde”) grafted onto rootstock 110R.
