    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.

    2014

    Castello dei Rampolla d'Alceo 2014 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (95)

    The 2014 d'Alceo is more in line with previous years than Sammarco. Deep, unctuous and super-powerful, the 2014 exudes richness and textural intensity from the very first taste. Readers will have to give the 2014 at least a few years in bottle to help some of the baby fat meld away. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, sage, mint and lavender are some of the many notes that start to emerge as the wine sits in the glass. This is a terrific effort for the vintage.

    Castello dei Rampolla d'Alceo 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (100)

    The 2017 D'Alceo possesses mind-blowing intensity and pedigree to burn. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2017 is magnificently impressive right out of the gate. Lavender, rose petal, spice, kirsch, mint and violet lead into a core of inky dark blue/purplish berry fruit. Soft contours and suave, silky tannins give the 2017 so much immediacy, but there is plenty of cellaring potential too. In a word: epic.

    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.

    Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco 2017 (6x75cl)

    James Suckling (98)

    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.
