GRAND CRU of TUSCANY. We're thrilled to to showcase the wines of CASTELLO dei RAMPOLLA in OTTAWA. Join us for a special evening of Tuscan wine, food and conversation. Sommelier Lauren Hayes-Van Den Weghe will lead us through the wines of this historic Tuscan estate, paired with Tuscan antipasti from La Bottega Chef Isabelle Larocque. Only 16 seats.
Castello dei Rampolla’s pedigree and roots are firmly entrenched in the Super Tuscan category. The estate dates back to the 13th century and has remained in the hands of the Di Napoli family since 1739. Castello dei Rampolla emerged as one of a hand-full of producers who played a major role in the revival of the Chianti Classico.
Inspired by the success of Sassicaia, Alceo Di Napoli made the decision to plant Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese vines in 1965. In these early years, grapes were sold onto Piero Antinori, as he gathered the fruit for the first vintages of Tignanello. The first Castello dei Rampolla vintage was launched in 1980 to great success. In part, this was thanks to the watchful eye of Giacomo Tachis, an oenologist who had previously consulted on Sassicaia during its ascent to fame.
Located in the revered ‘Concha d’Oro,’ west of the village, Rampolla’s neighbours include Le Fonti, Fontodi, il Palagio, Le Massa and more - this is ‘Grand Cru’ Tuscany. Castello dei Rampolla wines have become cult favourites for their consistency and authenticity.
