98 Points!  A deep and beautiful red with ripe berry, plum and orange peel character. Almost exotic in style. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a caressing texture. Goes on for minutes. So beautiful now but will be event better in 2018. Greatest L'Apparita ever?  James Suckling, August 5, 2015
96 Points!  Compared to 2010, the 2011 L'Apparita (100% Merlot) is a very different wine. It's impossible to imagine how Castello di Ama could improve on the utterly divine and delicious 2010, but I liked 2011 even more. Again, I just feel that this estate with its vineyards that reach beyond 500 meters in altitude performs best with warm vintages such as this one. Those who love Castello di Ama's wines will have to wait until the 2013 vintage is released. This is a gorgeous wine that sings in a loud and graceful voice. That extra cherry softness of Merlot has been pulled back to a perfect point. The wine offers layers of richness and suppleness. The effects are layered, complex and absolutely engaging. This is a standout wine.  Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate #221
 
95 Points!  The 2011 L'Apparita is magnificent, but it will take the better part of the next decade to show the full breadth of its pedigree. Dark and sumptuous in personality, the 2011 is incredibly youthful at this stage, with very little in the way of aromatic development. That will come in time. there is something unmistakably exotic to the 2011 that is likely to always remain a part of its DNA. Not surprisingly, of the three flagships, the Apparita is the most marked by the personality of the year.  Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, September 2015
