Castello Dei Rampolla
castello dei rampolla d'alceo red 2009
D'Alceo is a single vineyard, named in honor of Maurizia and Luca Di Napoli's late father Alceo, who planted the vineyard. While Sammarco is a pioneer in the Super-Tuscan establishment, Castello dei Rampolla's d'Alceo - which debuted in 1996 as Vigna d'Alceo, has undeniably attracted greater attention. Its intense marriage of opulence and power has given it cult status, placing it in the realm of Masseto and Messorio. No other in its class achieves such a stunning and provocative expression - with a lush density that belies the wine's serious structure. Petit Verdot's contribution - unusual in the Super-Tuscan genre, renders d'Alceo more potent than the most power-hungry of cult Cabernets, imparting a sleek and spicy dimension. Castello dei Rampolla practices biodynamic farming.
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 % Petit Verdot
Deep purple red color. Intense and complex bouquet on the nose with notes of espresso, sweet melted licorice, black currant, jam, tobacco and toasty oak. The palate is rich, full-bodied, elegant, with refined tannins.
Perfect with game, chicken, turkey, ham, aged cheese and mushrooms.
"A super generous red with spices, meat and berry character. Full body with round and velvety tannins. Rich and generous. Gorgeous wine."95 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING
