Castello dei Rampolla d’Alceo 2016
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): “The 2016 D’Alceo combines unctuous intensity with pure, raw power. It won’t be ready to drink until age ten, at least, but there is plenty to look forward to. With a few hours of air, the fruit and breadth both start to emerge. Inky blueberry, lavender, cloves, leather and licorice are some of the many nuances that build over time.” 97/100
Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): “The Castello dei Rampolla 2016 d’Alceo is an extra dark and brooding expression of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot in a supporting role. The wine sits firmly on the palate, imparting weight, staying power and extra heat. In fact, some sort of bistecca alla Fiorentina or otherwise succulent grilled meat pairing is what comes immediately to mind. The immense power of the wine rumbles and trembles in the glass, figuratively speaking, revealing dried blackberry, prune and black cherry confit. This 2016 vintage shows impressive clarity and focus both on the nose and in the mouth.” 96/100
