James Suckling “The structure of Margaux with the style of Rampolla. Best ever.”

In 2008 Tuscany, it is Suckling’s only 100-point wine
Putting it above Masseto, Colore, Ornellaia, Messorio, Redigaffi, Sassicaia – all these wines sell for much more and the top reviews from Suckling and Galloni’s96+ score where he puts this vintage near the top calling it “an absolute jewel…a wine of notable depth and purity”
The Brother and sister team Luca and Maurizia di Napoli are dedicated and as passionate as any top winemakers esteem to be, yet they are also some of the most down to earth winemakers you will meet. Their estate of Castello dei Rampolla in the heart of Chianti Classico on the hillsides near the town of Panzano is where their late father made the estate famous with its super Tuscan wine Sammarco. However, it is the brother and sister duo that took Rampolla to the next level with the Tuscan Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend d’Alceo.
