"Scored 95 points and a double gold at the 2019 American Fine Wine Competition."

• Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (90 Points)
"Castello di Amorosa's 2015 La Castellana is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. Pomegranate, plum, chocolate and sweet French oak infuse this supple, beautifully expressive red. Supple and giving, the 2015 will offer plenty of drinking pleasure over the near and medium term. All the elements are very nicely balanced.
• San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (Double Gold Medal)
"There were over forty-eight judges, representing various North American wine regions, evaluating 5,816 wines from nearly 1,000 wineries for the 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition."
I was pleasantly surprised by a beautifully smooth, and subtly but noticeably, tart bouquet of fruity notes including Bing cherries, pomegranate, nectarine, and hints of black currant.
The astringency is mild and the flavors are truly pleasant, bold, and complex. The promise to myself of only having one glass with a meal and storing the rest for aging was quickly broken, and this unique, memorable wine was gone too soon.
This wine took me by surprise and is absolutely worth storing, sharing, and drinking to your heart's delight, paired with food or by itself.
