Product Details

85% Cabernet-Sauvignon and 15% Petit-Verdot planted on a south-facing slope, entirely according to the laws of bio dynamics. d’Alceo is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest wines. The average scores for this wine are significantly higher than those of any Bordeaux Premier Grand Cru. That says it all.

Antonio Galloni (Vinous):Dark, powerful and explosive, D’Alceo is one of the epic wines of 2015. Crème de cassis, plum, graphite, sage, lavender, and menthol rush out of the glass in a deep, beautifully resonant wine loaded with class. A wine with striking inner sweetness, depth and structure, the 2015 will thrill readers lucky enough to own it for a number of years to come. The 2015 was fermented in cement and then spent 14 months in oak. It is rich, sumptuous and simply irresistible.97/100

Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): “Showing penetrating black fruit with lots of density and richness, the 2015 d’Alceo revealed a distant hint of rubber or animal that could be a point of concern if it were to worsen with time. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, and the fruit in this warm vintage is loosely knit and thick in fiber (ending with a 14.5% alcohol content that does leave its mark). The wine definitely needs more time to flesh out and integrate with bottle aging.” 94/100
