It feels incredible strolling down the cobblestone streets of the village of Ama, not only because of its medieval history, but because of the fact that there is an astounding collection of contemporary art all around you.
These installations make an already stunning setting come alive. The juxtaposition is stark yet exciting and welcoming, and makes the estate a cultural destination whose legacy extends even beyond its globally-acclaimed wines. After an afternoon of artistic exploration, we settle down for more corporal needs – food.
The food at Castello di Ama is as unmissable as the wine and art. The Tuscan fare here is made with so much love and care, it’s as if everyone in the kitchen is giving you hugs all throughout the meal. Till this day I’m still thinking about their panzanella, with its perfect balance of sweet, salty, freshness and textures.
