Castello dei Rampolla Vigna d'Alceo 2013
VM 100: "Readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on a few bottles of the 2013 d'Alceo. Seamless and voluptuous in the glass, it is an epic wine that embodies all the qualities that make these terraced vineyards in Panzano so special. Blackberry jam, crème de cassis, plum, licorice and spice meld together in the glass, but it is the wine's textural intensity that elevates it into the realm of the profound. The 2013 has been nothing short of moving on the two occasions I tasted it recently." - Antonio Galloni
WE 96:Truffle, plum, mocha and pipe tobacco are some of the aromas you’ll find on this compelling wine. A polished blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot, the smooth full-bodied palate delivers spiced blueberry, cassis, licorice and exotic spice framed in tightly knit ultra-refined tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2020-2033.
