Description

2006 D’Alceo Toscana IGT, Castello dei Rampolla

D’Alceo spiegelt die Eigenschaften des Weinbergs, aus dem er stammt, vollständig wider. Intensiv, warm, raffiniert und elegant. Die reifen roten Früchte harmonieren perfekt mit den Noten von zarter Zigarre und Tabak.

Eine unglaubliche Konzentration ohne Schwere. Ausnahmsweise sprechen wir nicht von einem Wein, sondern von der Persönlichkeit eines von Alceo gepflanzten Weinbergs, der sich nicht hätte vorstellen können, die hervorragende Kombination aus Lage, Boden und Rebsorten (Cabernet Sauvignon und Petit Verdot) gefunden zu haben.

Die durchschnittliche Produktion beträgt 6000 - 12000 Flaschen.

James Suckling:
Rich and dark fruits with blackberries and fresh herbs on the nose. What intensity. Full-bodied with firm tannins and a spicy finish. Very powerful at the finish. Goes on and on. So much dark fruit here. Wonderful character. Hard not to drink, but better in three or four years.

Vinous:
The 2006 d'Alceo is huge. Still tannic, powerful and brooding, the 2006 is clearly a wine for the future. The 2006 boasts striking depth, gorgeous inner perfume and dazzling balance. With time in the glass, the 2006 starts to flesh out a bit, but it remains intense and muscular to the core. Sweet floral notes, plums, cloves and mint are layered into the finish. This is another epic d'Alceo from Rampolla that captures the purest essence of one of the great all-time Tuscan vintages.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2006 D’Alceo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is a much tighter-wound wine than the Sammarco but it also seems to be holding back a lot more sheer density in reserve. Full-bodied, rich and monstrously tannic at this stage, it doesn’t taste too different than it did when I first sampled it from tank in November 2006! The wine possesses dazzling inner perfume, refined tannins that need time to emerge and exceptional overall balance. It is a fabulous effort from Rampolla.

Wine Spectator:
Shows beautiful aromas and flavors of currant, toasty oak, tobacco and licorice. Full and very polished, with a wonderful finish. A gorgeous young wine. Layered and structured.
