Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The massive ’97 Vigna d’Alceo bursts from the glass with a profusion of ripe, succulent red and blue fruit, truffles, earth, crushed flower petals, spice, and espresso. It’s a gorgeous wine that displays a wealth of power, fruit, concentration, body and tannins on its supple, full-bodied frame. Castello dei Rampolla has been making its Bordeaux-style blend Vigna d’Alceo since 1996; with the help of famed enologist Giacomo Tachis, estate owners Luca and Maurzia di Napoli created this cru Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend to honor the passing of their father, Alceo. Since its creation, this wine has garnered a cult status for its lushness, density, clarity and intensity. Just 1,000 cases of this powerhouse vintage made.
