Among the many new releases I tasted from this vintage, this wine offers an extremely pure and genuine expression of Sangiovese. The 2014 Chianti Classico shows wild and unpredictable aromas of wild berry, white almond and freshly milled peppercorn. There are subtle nuances of blue flower and moist earth as well. But this wine really excels when it comes to showing the tangy and spicy side of Sangiovese. The mouthfeel is thin and crisp, but this wine also shows introspective grace and inner elegance. The tannins are sweet and firm.

A vivid, acidity-driven red, with accents of blood orange augmenting cherry, almond, licorice and earth flavors. Well-balanced, this lingers with echoes of almond and earth. Drink now through 2020. 2,916 cases made.
"The land on which the Castello dei Rampolla farm stands has been owned by the family since 1739. Much history has passed over these lands, but that of our family starts in the mid-1960’s with the dream of one man, Alceo di Napoli Rampolla, who wished to create a great wine. In 1975 our first bottles of Chianti Classico were produced. This was a time when Chianti Classico was struggling to assert itself and to earn the respect it deserved.
It is now twenty years since we began practising Biodynamic Agriculture and Philosophy. We realized that to work with nature it is worth taking the time to observe it. The so called “Terroir” is the unity and harmony of four elements: Earth, Air, Life and Humanity, so we focus on these."
