2007 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana

SKU #1196325 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has so much blackberry, porcini mushroom, and chestnut character. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long finish. Love the way this changes from mushrooms and earth to blackberries. So impressive now, but will be better in three or four years. Inner quote mark (9/2011)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark raspberries, cloves, menthol and crushed rocks wrap around the palate in the 2007 d'Alceo. Rich, voluptuous and sexy, the 2007 is very much a product of a vintage that yielded a crop of resonant, generous wines. The ripe, silky tannins will make the 2007 accessible relatively early, but it also has more than enough depth to age well for years. Today, the flavors are naturally still quite primary and there is still quite a bit of baby fat that has to melt off before the 2007 enters its prime drinking window. Still, there is a lot to like, including the wine's huge, palate-staining finish. Grace meets power in the 2007. In a word: dazzling! (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Suave and silky, with rich black currant, blackberry and spice flavors backed by lively acidity and dusty tannins. It all hangs together beautifully, with a Bordeaux-like cast to the flavors and profile. There's intensity, without this being showy or heavy. Terrific length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. *Collectibles* (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep purple-ruby. Knockout nose combines blackcurrant, violet, coffee, menthol, tar and graphite. The palate offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and penetrating power, with brisk acidity framing and lifting the very rich flavors of black fruits, minerals and spices. The very long, soft, supple finish conveys an impression of energy and youthfulness, not to mention the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. Lay this one down. (ID) 94+ Inner quote mark (7/2012)
