1986 Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco

SKU #1017483

One of the very first Super Tuscans, this very long-lived red has always been a blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. According to James Suckling, of the Wine Spectator: "Sammarco was first produced at Castello dei Rampolla in 1980, years before Vigna d'Alceo. It was Alceo, the father of Luca and Maurizia di Napoli, who first started making Sammarco, a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although its popularity has waned slightly with the starlike debut of its sister, Vigna d'Alceo, serious Italian collectors have always considered this a must-have wine."

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
