Wine Advocate 91 points Made with no added sulfites, as is recorded on the front label, the Castello dei Rampolla 2020 Trebianco di S. Lucia opens to a darkish copper color and orange highlights. Made in amphorae, the nose is neutral with subtle hints of beeswax, candied fruit and dried apricot that denote an oxidative winemaking style. As the wine opens in the glass, you will appreciate hints of flowery tea leaf and some lingering nuttiness. Skin contact gives this white wine a unique sense of tannic firmness and structure. The blend is Trebbiano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Traminer.  Drinking 2021 - 2024

James Suckling, August 2021Vinous 92 points The 2020 Trebianco di Santa Lucia is a blend of Trebbiano, Chardonnay, Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia done in amphora. Readers will find an orange wine of notable structure, power and intensity. Tangerine oil, chamomile, hazelnut and spice add complexity. Stylistically, the Trebianco is pretty eccentric compared to most of the reds, especially the flagships.  Drinking 2021 - 2026 — Antonio Galloni
These new releases from the Di Napoli family are off the charts. I tasted the wines twice, just to make sure my enthusiasm was not more a reflection of being in Chianti Classico after two years. It wasn’t. The wines are off the charts. For years, Rampolla has been a beacon for biodynamic farming and bold, explosive reds that age gracefully for many years. A number of refinements, including shortening time in wood for the top bottling, has given the wines even more nuance and complexity.
