    Chianti Classico DOCG 2018

    Maurizia di Napoli Rampolla and her brother Luca call their strategy of viticulture close to nature "gentle agriculture". The very successful Chianti Classico with a clean fruit bouquet, precise taste and firm tannin is a treat that is strictly limited every year. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Rich, sparkling ruby. Intense nose with lots of dark berry fruit, rich blackberry and black cherry, some black truffle in the background. Powerful and dense on the palate, builds richly, opens with hearty, dense tannin, lots of pressure on the final, a Chianti Classico to keep in storage." Falstaff

    "The Castello dei Rampolla 2018 Chianti Classico shows some softness and extra ripeness with dark fruit and plum followed by savory smoke and spice. This wine is an expression of the one and only Panzano in Chianti, a promising subzone in the larger Chianti Classico appellation with panoramic views awash in soft golden light at the end of each glorious day. To the palate, the wine delivers rich, mid-weight intensity with more textured and succulent flavors to follow. This wine is just lovely, especially when tasted right out of the gate when those cherry and blackberry tones are at their brightest." Robert Parker

    "A wonderful young Chianti Classico with aromas and flavors of black cherries, dark chocolate, wet earth and black truffle. It’s full-bodied with creamy and juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish." James Suckling

    "The 2018 Chianti Classico is fabulous. Deep, rich and super-expressive, the 2018 captures the essence of the house style, with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon that adds both complexity and structural intensity. Black cherry, plum, licorice, lavender and dried herbs are kicked up a few notches. This is an especially rich style for the year, but it works so well." Vinous

    "Black-skinned fruit, new leather, tilled earthy and blue flower aromas mingle with camphor on this fragrant, enticing red. Fresh and savory, the elegant, full-bodied palate doles out ripe black plum, juicy Morello cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside polished tannins that give it a velvety texture. Fresh acidity lends brightness and balance." Wine Enthusiast
