Producer's description

The Castello dei Rampolla estate is located in the heart of Tuscany, next to the tiny medieval town of Panzano, in the southern part of the valley called Conca d'Oro ("Golden Shell"). The ancient picturesque castle, as well as the cellars in which the wines are stored, were built in the 13th century. Since 1739, the castle has belonged to the di Napoli Rampolla family. However, a professional winery was only founded in 1964 by Alceo di Napoli, inspired by the wonderful super Tuscan wines. In 1965, he received the first harvest from the vineyards he cultivated and sold it to the Antinori family.

Starting in 1970, the winery began its own vinification, and in 1975 the first wine was released under the brand name "Castello dei Rampolla" . Alceo di Napoli begins to collaborate with the famous oenologist Giacomo Takis, the author of such a “star” wine as “Sassicaia” - one of the leading Italian wines in the Bordeaux style. In 1980, they released the first vintage of "Sammarco", in the blend of which, unlike the first monovarietal wines "Castello dei Rampolla", created only from Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and even later Merlot are introduced. Fully biodynamic farming methods were established in the vineyards, and with fairly high planting densities, yields were severely limited. In 1996, a new wine appeared in the product line - "Vigna d'Alceo", created by Alceo's son - Luca - in honor of his father. This unusual, powerful wine is becoming an iconic Super Tuscan wine. Today the farm is run by sister and brother Maurizia and Luca di Napoli Rampolla - great wine enthusiasts who are in love with their beautiful land. They continue their fruitful collaboration with Takis, expanding their line of wines while maintaining consistently high quality.

“The wines of Castello dei Rampolla have long been among my favorites in Tuscany... They remind me of the great Graves wines,” noted wine critic Robert Parker wrote in his book The World's Greatest Wine Estates .
