Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The ’10 Vigna d’Alceo might be the quintessential “Big Red.” The outstanding ’10 Vigna d’Alceo owes much of its visceral kick, its concentration, and its harmony to the year’s poor weather. While the quantity was down, the quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot for the estate’s Vigna d’Alceo was incredibly high. The result is a wine of dark, powerful fruits laid on a dark, powerful foundation of smoke, pencil lead, cigar wrapper, olive tapenade, exotic spices, and herbs. The structured, full-bodied ’10 Vigna d’Alceo thrums with energy as it wraps the palate in velvety tannins and lingers for a near eternity. Castello dei Rampolla turned biodynamic in the '90s, one of the first Tuscan vineyards to do so, and now, the estate is experimenting with amphora, although its Vigna d’Alceo is still vinified in barriques.
