The vineyard
The land on which the Castello dei Rampolla farm stands has been owned by the family since 1739. In the mid-1960’s, Alceo di Napoli Rampolla had an intuition and decided, with the help of a great winemaker Giacomo Tachis , to be the first in the area to plant Cabernet Sauvignon and to blend it with Sangiovese. This was the first of the Castello dei Rampolla revolutions, only a few years after the farms birth.
Aided by Tachis the estate’s di Napoli family combines biodynamic methods in its vineyards and modern technology in its cellars to produce world-class wines.
