On a vine-covered hilltop in Tuscany sits Castello dei Rampolla, a family-owned estate that's been growing grapes since before the American Revolution. Cradled in Chianti's 'Conca d'Oro', or golden basin, the Castello enjoys ample sunshine, fine terroir and esteemed neighbors like Fontodi.

After almost three centuries of farming and winemaking, you might think the di Napoli family would be immutably set in their ways. But you'd be wrong — today, Castello dei Rampolla is one of the region's most forward-thinking and experimental producers.

For 20 years, the estate has farmed biodynamically, well before it was fashionable and with a single goal in mind, to ensure the health and vigor of the land. If the land is healthy, anything growing from it will be of the highest quality, and even though biodynamic farming is harder and more time consuming, they know the extra effort is worth it in the end. And although they're passionate about low environmental impact farming, they refuse any certification

"Plum, fragrant blue flower, leather and ripe berry are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this fragrant, delicious wine. It’s chewy and enveloping but also boasts a weightless elegance, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry compote, licorice and tobacco while velvety fine-grained tannins offer polished support. Drink through 2023."
