Castello dei Rampolla Description

The cellars of the Rampolla winery, near Panzano in central Tuscany, date back to the 13th century. Situated on 42 hectares of calcareous soil about 360 meters above sea level, these vineyards are ideal for Sangiovese, which here achieves particular vigour and potential for long-aging.
The di Napoli family combines biodynamic methods in the vineyard with its modern, well-equipped cellars to produce world class wines with the famous consultant oenologist, Giacomo Tachis.
The Chianti Classico bottling accounts for approximately 100,000 of the total 150,000 bottle production. The remainder is divided between the Riserva, the Sammarco and their white, Trebianco.

Sanmarco - Tuscan I.G.T.

Tasting Notes: A 'Super Tuscan', Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese. Thick black fruits, notes of cranberries and damsons. Will age well. A beautifully crafted wine and a former international red wine of the year. Saturated ruby streaked with dark purple. Taut and closed in youthful concentration. The rich flavours lurking in the full-bodied palate precisely reflect the nose and finish long with ripe, yet tongue-clenching tannins.

Tasting Notes: Similar to Sammarco but even bigger and longer lived. A mass of dark fruits, tannins and oakey notes. This wine will live for the next 20 years at least. Saturated ruby-purple with a tiny clear rim. Graphite, blackberry, cassis and marischino cherries on the deep, potent nose. Black fruits, plum preserves, sweet oak and licorice permeate the palate. Succulent and juicy with abundant glycerin, round tannin, sufficient supporting acidity and a lengthy finish. He has awarded vintages with 98 & 99 points!
