Buy Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco
Special BOAR points - The 2005 Sammarco is elegant and refined although it lacks the structure and power of the finest vintages. It possesses terrific depth of fruit and outstanding length, both of which are no doubt enhanced by the addition of some of the fruit that is normally destined for the DíAlceo bottling. In 2005 Sammarco is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Sangiovese. This should be a fairly early-drinking vintage, something that canít often be said about the estateís wines. To be released in 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. I canít think of too many places where 2005 was more challenging than Castello dei Rampolla. Losses were so severe that the estate didnít even bother to harvest a portion of their vineyards. Production is significantly down from normal levels. Rampolla did make their top selections, but production of the DíAlceo is so reduced that the wine wonít be shipped to the US. These are commendable efforts for the vintage but they show the inevitable effects of the growing season.

Deep red-no sign of age on this wine. Licorice, tobacco and exotic spice on the nose. Deeep inky, woody taste, very intense and sublime at the same time. I would say this was a perfectly aged wine-once we knew what it was. I have tasted many Sammarco of different years and maturity. Wine needs time to develop and this on was just right. Mature while at the same time holding on to some aspects of youth that made it compelling. A fabulous Sammarco
