Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco 1994
|Brand||Castello dei Rampolla|
A thoroughly caressing and delicious red. Very pretty, with rose, berry, plum and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a long, ripe fruit finish. Drink now through 2005. 3,000 cases made.
The dark ruby/purple-colored 1994 Sammarco, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Sangiovese, reveals aromas of lead pencil, charred leather, black cherries, and toasty oak. With moderately high tannin, and a more angular, austere personality than is generally found in Sammarco, this very good to excellent effort will benefit from 1-2 years of cellaring. It should keep for 12 or more years.
