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 2014 (1x150cl)

Wine Enthusiast (95)

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.

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 2014 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2014 Sammarco was bottled in August and will be released in January 2019. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Sangiovese. At this young stage, the wine already offers an impressive array of complex aromas with dark berry, spice and grilled herb neatly overlapping. Those tones are delivered with perfume-like grace and intensity. This vintage is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, and those youthful tannins remind us that this wine will award the best results to those who have the patience to wait.
