Castello dei Rampolla estate located in the heart of Tuscany, near the tiny medieval town of Panzano, in the southern part of the valley, which is called the Conca d'Oro ("Golden Shell"). Ancient picturesque castle and cellars in which the wine is stored, were built in the XIII century. Since 1739, the castle belongs to the family di Napoli Rampolla (di Napoli Rampolla). Nevertheless, professional winery was founded only in 1964 Alcheo di Napoli, inspired by the beauty of super Tuscan wines. In 1965, he received the first harvest of cultivated vineyards and sold them to his family Antinori.

Alcheo di Napoli began to cooperate with the famous oenologist Giacomo Takis, the author of the "star" of wine as "Sassicaia" - one of the leading Italian wines in the Bordeaux style. In 1980 they released the first vintage "Sammarco", a blend which, unlike the first monosortovyh wine "Castello dei Rampolla" created only from Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and even introduced later Merlot.
