CASTELLO DEI RAMPOLLA - Sammarco 1998Italian Red Wine
A 'Super Tuscan', Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese.
Thick black fruits, notes of cranberries and damsons. Will age well. A beautifully crafted wine and a former international red wine of the year. Saturated ruby streaked with dark purple. Taut and closed in youthful concentration.
The rich flavours lurking in the full-bodied palate precisely reflect the nose and finish long with ripe, yet tongue-clenching tannins.
