Castello dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2012

Castello dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2012

Sku: 029963

Tasting notes
Bright ruby color. Lovely, rich cherry and berry aromas with leafy undertones follow through to a medium palate, with medium, fine tannins and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. Perfect with all kinds of grilled meats.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Oct 2014)
The 2012 Chianti Classico opens to primary fruit aromas of cherry and red currant. Balsam herb, rosemary, almond paste and a strong whiff of medicinal herb rise from the bouquet. There’s a tightness to the mouthfeel, a firmness of texture that is really beautiful to feel over the palate.

Wine maker notes
The estate S. Lucia in Faulle, where the Castello dei Rampolla wine is produced, is in the southern valley of Panzano, so called ’Conca d’Oro’ . It has been owned by the Di Napoli Rampolla family since 1739. From 1964 Alceo Di Napoli devoted himself to grape growing, using modern methods. The first vinifications were in 1970’s; the first bottling of wine was done from the grape harvest of 1975. Now the business is run by Maurizia and her brother Luca Di Napoli Rampolla with the collaboration of full time and seasonal workers. The vineyards occupy 42 hectolitres in total, not all in production yet. The lands are predominantly calcareous with little clay and many stones. The vineyards have a south, southeast and southwest exposure. Their altitudes run from 1200 ft to 900 ft.
