2016 Sammarco, Castello dei Rampolla, IGT Toscana, Tuscany

£75.00 inc. VAT

Probably the best value Super Tuscan on the market and there’s not much 2016 remaining.

Sammarco is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese and is produced by Castello dei Rampolla, one of Chianti’s finest estates. It regularly scores the same or even higher than more notable Super Tuscans like Sassicaia and Tignanello, but costs a fraction of the price.

Here is Antonio Galloni’s tasting note on this magnificent wine.

“The 2016 Sammarco is a dense, flamboyant wine. Inky red fruit, spice, cedar, tobacco, menthol and licorice are some of the notes that build in a statuesque Sammarco that dazzles from start to finish. A wine of stunning textural richness and intensity, Sammarco is translucent, sculpted and full of character. All the elements are so well balanced. Rose petal, cedar, tobacco and mint linger on the eternal finish. The 2016 is a magical wine that can be, surprisingly, enjoyed now or cellared for a number of years. Time in the glass just brings out its energy and vertical drive. Sammarco is quite possibly the single greatest value in high-end Italian wine. Don’t miss it.” 98 Points, Antonio Galloni, VinousMedia
