  • Score: 93 Vintage 2020 James Suckling This is a fruity and flavorful red with softness and generosity. Full-bodied, round and delicious. Amphora produced, No sulphites added. Unfiltered. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2020 Wine Advocate The Castello dei Rampolla 2020 Sangiovese di S. Lucia is fermented in a material known as "cocciopesto" in Italian. It's like an amphora made with a conglomerate of inert clays. The wine reveals a very natural and somewhat raw personality with lots of ripe cherry, blackberry and tangy plum. The mouthfeel is lean and streamlined, and although this ensemble is not too complicated, it does deliver a fun and easy drinking style. I wouldn't put my money on a long-term drinking window, and I recommended that you drink this bottle in the near term while the fruit is at its freshest. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2020 Vinous Media The 2020 Sangiovese di Santa Lucia is bold, pungent and super-expressive. A rush of dark red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, spice, mint and lavender races across the palate as this fleshy, voluptuous Sangiovese shows off its charms. Sweet floral notes punctuate the brilliant, explosive finish. The aromatics alone are alluring, but there is plenty of grip too. I would prefer to drink the 2020 over the next few years.

  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Enthusiast Fresh and delicious, this 100% Sangiovese has earthy aromas of sunbaked soil, truffle, leather and ripe plum. Made entirely in earthenware vessels of cocciopesto (a blend of stone, sand, marl and terra-cotta) and without added sulfites, the smooth, juicy palate doles out ripe black cherry, blackberry, baking spice and mineral alongside supple tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's made to be drunk young so enjoy soon. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Sangiovese di Santa Lucia is Rampolla's red done in amphora, with no SO2. Bright, punchy and full of character, the Sangiovese is a wine of notable personality, I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later, while the fruit remains vibrant. Sweet floral, spice and game notes, along with that touch of reduction wines in amphora show, add to its personality. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2019 James Suckling A fresh, fruity red with lots of berries and hints of stems. A little edgy, too, with stewed fruit. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator The pure cherry and raspberry fruit in this red is alluring, but there is also a funky, earthy note that detracts from its purity. Mousy finish. For fans of the style. Drink now. 190 cases made, 30 cases imported.  Shelf Talker Full Page Review
