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.
