Castello Di Ama

“The winery, begun in 1972 as a result of the love of four families from Rome, currently comprises some 250 hectares, of which 90 are in vines and 40 in olives trees, growing at an average altitude of 480 meters. Annual production, exclusively from our estate vineyards, amounts to about 300-350,000 bottles, or some 3,500-4,000 bottles per hectare. The winery standard-bearer is “Castello di Ama,” a wine produced by a rigorous selection of sangiovese grapes from the most outstanding vineyard parcels.”
