With a commitment to quality that is second to none, Castello di Ama has gained a global following on account of their unique, single vineyard Sangiovese and iconic Merlot. They're at the forefront of winemaking in Chianti Classico and craft aromatically complex, powerful and elegant wines from the heart of Tuscany that are always a joy to taste. We couldn't agree more with Antonio Galloni when he notes that the wines are "some of the most majestic, viscerally thrilling wines I have ever tasted... Don't miss them!
The Purple Rosé is no exception and we are thrilled to have a parcel of this supremely elegant rosé to offer you today, available for immediate delivery from our cellars. Only bottled in magnums which brings this into its ideal drinking window today, this is a unique rosé crafted from 96% Sangiovese and just a touch of Merlot from the best vats that Castello di Ama have. The wines spend 12 hours on the skins before partial fermentation in oak barriques, which results in greater power, colour, balance and depth of flavour as well as the ability to age while allowing classic rosé lightness to shine through. With the dried floral aromas of Sangiovese, bright flavours of red cherry and a refreshing acidity, this is a rosé that we just love - both on its own or with food.
Galloni agrees, noting that this is "silky, perfumed and light on its feet. It has more than enough complexity and depth to drink well with a wide range of foods." Although the welcoming of the spring sunshine may be taking place from the confines of your living room, balcony or garden, we think this would make a perfect wine to enjoy whilst getting through the coming weekends at home.

"Bright medium red-pink. Very precise, juicy aromas and flavours of red cherry and herbs showcase very good size and depth, plus an enticing tactile chewy mouthfeel. A blend of mostly Sangiovese with a little Merlot. Co-owner and winemaker Marco Pallanti is one of those gifted winemakers who would have trouble making a bad wine even if he sets out to do so on purpose. (May 2019) "
