2012 Vigna d’Alceo, Castello dei Rampolla, IGT Toscana (Bottle)

Italy Tuscany

The 2012 d'Alceo is a Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This is a more challenging vintage. There is a heavy layer of ripe fruit with sweet strawberry and dried blackberry that is hard to dig past in order to reach more delicate and complex nuances. The 2012 summer heat and lack of rain makes for less dimension. The wine drinks nicely now, but I would suggest a near to medium-term drinking window.

Jeroboams

Full yet elegant, the 2012 has fine and rich tannins framing the sweet ripe plum and cherry fruit flavours.
