Castello Dei Rampolla Toscana Rosso Vigna D'alceo 2018

Critical Acclaim: 97 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 pts James Suckling, 94 pts Wine Spectator


Tasting Notes: "The 2018 d'Alceo is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (85%), with Petit Verdot (15%) in a supporting role. The wine reveals an inky dark appearance with dried blackberry, rum cake, succulent blackberry and syrupy kirsch. There is a good amount of fruit weight to carry the wine over the palate, but the quality of the fruit is superb; and the finish is finely textured and silky despite the robust aromas. It is powerful, yet weightless at the same time. That in itself is something of a small miracle. Fruit is sourced from across a six-hectare vineyard with south and southeast exposures. Drinking Window 2025-2048"- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Lots of blackcurrant and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body with firm tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of black licorice, aniseed and light asphalt. Lead pencil, too. Try after 2025." - James Suckling

"This juicy, almost silky red is marked by aromas and flavors of cherry, black currant, violet, Tuscan scrub and earth. Vibrant yet dense, with lightly chewy tannins lining the finish. Features fine balance and length overall. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2025 through 2042." - Wine Spectator
