2019 Chianti Classico, Castello dei Rampolla, Tuscany, Italy

£34.50 inc. VAT

A big scoring and much sought after Chianti. Rampolla is located in the heart of the Conca d’Oro, a bowl shaped valley below Panzano and recognised as one of Italy’s greatest terroirs. The land here has been in the family since 1739, but vines were not planted until the end of the 1960s, when Alceo di Napoli Rampolla inherited the estate.

In the late 1970’s, Alceo, with the help of Giacomo Tachis (who created Sassicaia), planted the first Cabernet vines and in 1980 the first vintage of the now legendary Sammarco was made.

This ripe and super-expressive Chianti has flavours of black cherry, leather, dark chocolate, licorice and lavender. There is a great balance of elegance and power here with the fresh acidity complimenting the rich fruit.

The winery has been biodynamic since 1994 and the wines are produced with hardly any sulphur. Castello dei Rampolla is one of the leading lights of Tuscan wine production.
