Castello dei Rampolla

About Castello dei Rampolla

The historic estate of Castello dei Rampolla is held in tremendously high regard by Antoni Galloni (Vinous), the world's foremost writer on Italian wine, who considers that the Tuscan legend produces "some of the most compelling wines of Tuscany, and the world, for that matter". Nestled deep in the heart of the stunning Chianti Classico region, the team at Castello dei Rampolla pursue both biodynamic farming, and minimalist winemaking to give their wines a "feeling of transparency that is incredibly distinctive" which makes them, in Galloni's eyes, "one of the real stars of Chianti Classico".

Located in Panzano's famous Conce d'Oro (Golden Basin) district, the winery of Castello dei Rampolla is surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of breathtakingly beautiful hillside vineyards. Something of a maverick estate, inherited by the noble di Napoli family as part of a wedding dowry in 1739, Castello dei Rampolla is proudly "one of Tuscany's most intriguingly unconventional estates" (Wine Spectator). Alceo di Napoli revolutionised the estate upon inheriting the estate in 1965, so much so that the prestige cuvée of Castello dei Rampolla now bears his name! We are delighted to offer this very cuvée today.

Castello dei Rampolla d'Alceo 2009 (1x150cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (96+)

The 2009 d'Alceo comes across as much more classic in style and structure than the 2008. According to Luca di Napoli, the trick to 2009 was harvesting on the early side. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, plums, mint and licorice all take shape in the glass Over the last few months, the 2009 d'Alceo has softened a bit, releasing expressive, floral aromatics, brighter shades of fruit and striking inner perfume, but it remains quite vibrant in the context of a vintage in which so many wines are quite a bit riper in style. The 2009 is a wonderfully deep, resonant d'Alceo that should offer a wide drinking window starting in a few years. It certainly looks like Rampolla nailed the vintage.

Castello dei Rampolla d'Alceo 2011 (1x150cl)

Vinous (97)

The 2011 d'Alceo is fascinating to taste next to the Sammarco, as it is much more open-knit, silky and expressive. Cherry jam, pomegranate, spice and new leather flesh out in the glass. The integration of fruit, tannin and acidity is further along than in the Sammarco. The 2011 d'Alceo should open up pretty early, which should be welcome news to readers cellaring some of the more tannic vintages. I expect the 2011 will provide readers with a long drinking window of pure pleasure.

Wine Advocate (94)

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the 2013 d'Alceo shows an inky dark appearance with impenetrable color saturation. This is another gorgeous wine from an estate I admire deeply. The fruit intensity peels off this wine with elegance, power and intensity. With similar momentum, the wine glides clear over the palate with silky and long intensity. There are some pungent or volatile notes (similar to what you find in the other wines), but they are a plus, not a minus. They give support and intensity to the wine's persuasive aromatic performance. This wine needs more time to unwind in the cellar.

Made with 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot, this focused red offers earthy aromas of moist soil, new leather, cedar and black currant. It's elegant and racy, delivering cassis, juicy black cherry, licorice, chopped mint and tobacco framed in fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. It's already delicious but hold for even more complexity and to let the tannins unwind.

Lots of richness here, but there’s always balance and focus with blackberry and chocolate character and hazelnut undertones. Bark, too. It’s full-bodied, but tight and focused at the end. Always a great wine. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2024.

Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco 1998 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (90)

For more than two decades one of the greatest Tuscan proprietary red wines has been Castello dei Rampolla's Cabernet Sauvignon/Sangiovese blend called Sammarco. What has always made this wine exceptional, especially in the top vintages, is its complexity and elegance. It is closer to a great Graves than any other wine I have ever tasted outside of France. The 1998 Sammarco, a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese, reveals structure and tannin. Additionally, it possesses formidable underlying concentration and depth, along with that multi-layered mid-palate that always seems to separate exceptional wines from good ones. The 1998 Sammarco's deep, saturated ruby color is followed by a complex bouquet of charcoal, roasted herbs, smoke, hot gravel, black currants, and cherries. It is medium-bodied and deep, with high but sweet tannin, and extraordinary purity as well as delineation. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.

Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco 2003 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2003 Sammarco (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 5% Sangiovese) presents a gorgeously ripe, jammy nose along with licorice, cassis, smoke, earthiness, grilled herbs and sweet dark fruit nuances that flow from the glass. Full-bodied and long on the palate, it is a massively structured effort that should drink well to age 20, perhaps longer. Only the hard, drying tannins on the finish keep the score from going higher. The 2003 is the first vintage of Sammarco that adds a small percentage of Merlot to the blend. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

The 2005 Sammarco is soft, silky and impeccable balanced. Still fresh and beautifully delineated, the 2005 possesses striking harmony in a mid-weight expression of this site. Sweet plum, violet, herbs, mint and sage notes add nuance on the finely-knit finish. There are no hard edges or angular contours here, just spike of acidity on the close that serves as a reminder of the cool, rainy conditions.”

The 2013 Sammarco is a stunning wine. Super-expressive aromatics make a strong opening statement in a wine endowed with myriad dimensions of nuance and complexity. The 2013 is deep and fleshy, with generous fruit, beautifully integrated tannins and exceptional finesse. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle of this any time soon, though, as it seems likely to age at a glacial pace.

I love the meatiness to this wine, but also the purity of fruit; think charcuterie, prosciutto, bay leaf, capsicum, blueberries, blackcurrants and crushed stones. You just can’t get over the way this manages to deliver a powerful, muscular package with stunning finesse and poise. The tapestry of intricate texture and detail is wrought in a flashy but sincere and heartwarming style. The balance takes your breath away. Best ever from here. Impossible to resist now, but better from 2025.

It’s medium to full-bodied with wonderful, creamy tannins and a persistent and complete finish. Better than the exquisite 2015? A blend of cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese and merlot. Needs three to four years to show all it has. Definitely one for the cellar.

Such beautiful balance and refinement to this legendary red with cherries, chocolate, walnuts, hazelnuts and autumn leaves. It’s medium to full-bodied with wonderful, creamy tannins and a persistent and complete finish. Better than the exquisite 2015? A blend of cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese and merlot. Needs three to four years to show all it has. Definitely one for the cellar.
