Vinous 100 IWC 97+ JS 95 WA 94 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Rampolla's 2010 d'Alceo is utterly spellbinding today. Even better than it was last year, the 2010 impresses for its exceptional balance and pure finesse. Everything is simply in the right place. Silky, layered and unbelievably expressive, the 2010 d'Alceo is a thrill from the very first taste. Over the decades the Di Napoli family has made so many breathtaking wines, but the 2010 d'Alceo is something more than breathtaking, and that something more is hard to express with words. Readers lucky enough to taste the 2010, however, will know it right away. What a magnificent wine this is."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant, minerals, cedar and graphite are lifted by an intense note of violet. Smooth and fine-grained, with rich, multilayered flavors of vibrant cassis, blackberry, vanilla, aromatic herbs and candied violet. The finish is silky and extremely long, resonating with violet and flinty blackcurrant. D’Alceo is almost one of Italy’s top 20 wines of the vintage, but this 2010 looks as if it will turn into something truly special."
According to James Suckling - "Plenty of currant, herb and mineral character. Bright and lifted with so much complexity. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Layered and beautiful. From organically grown grapes. Cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better in 2016."
According to Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Vigna d’Alceo Vino da Tavola is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot folded so deep within one another, it’s difficult to hear the varietal voice of the wine. Dried cherries and blackberry appear as primary tones, but the wine also offers a good dose of spice, black olive, rosemary twig and dried plum. The wine takes its time to open in the glass and will probably require much patience in terms of cellar aging as well." 14.5% ABV.
