Castello di Ama’s Purple Rose is gorgeous. Ample and radiant on the palate, with lovely silkiness, the 2017 Purple Rose is a serious wine endowed with tons of textural depth. Blood orange, star anise, crushed rose petals and mint add an attractive hint of exoticism. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018)

A wine of true pedigree, Castello di Ama's 2014 Rosato impresses for is its layered, silky personality and fabulous balance. Floral notes meld into expressive, red-fleshed fruit as this refined, beautifully resonant Rose shows off its inimitable class. (AG)

One of the best rose I've tried. Very fresh and balanced, red fruits and roses. Nice acidity

Year in year out this is one of the top Rosatos in Italy. Fruit, structure to stand food but lacking all notes of heaviness thus provides as much pleasure just on its own. Excellent
