Ama is a small hamlet, located among Chianti hills at an altitude of approximately 500 meters above sea level. In 1972, four families coming from Rome felt in love with this place and decided to buy the whole estate - composed of 55 hectares - with the aim to restore the vineyards, taking them back to the ancient majesty of 1773 and to produce a Chianti worthy to stand together with the great wines. In 1979 the works for the building of a new vinification cellar ended up. This cellar has been projected and built following modern standards and it is still considered as an example of contemporary cellar. The last name of one of these four families from Rome was Sebasti, and Mrs Lorenza Sebasti is currently co-owner and CEO of Castello di Ama.
