2000 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana

SKU #1001326 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark For whatever reason, the full-bodied 2000 Vigna d'Alceo was roaring the day I tasted it. A single vineyard blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese, it tastes like the Sammarco on steroids. It boasts a deep purple color in addition to scents of espresso, sweet melted licorice, black currant jam, and toasty oak. There is great intensity, superb purity, and a finish that lingers for nearly a minute. This mythical wine requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and will age effortlessly for two decades.

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2000 Vigna d'Alceo is gorgeous. It is also one of the most open, pliant wines in this tasting. Plums, savory herbs, violets and licorice all flesh out in the glass. Beautifully soft and caressing throughout, the 2000 is a great choice for drinking now and over the next decade. The 2000 is a bit slender next to many of the other vintages, but is balance is exceptional. Sweet, silky tannins round of the finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2013)
