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 2013 (6x75cl)

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.

Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco 2013 (6x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (98)

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.
