Isole e Olena Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2015

This Sangiovese was complex yet explosive and compact - did not like it at first as needed air but got better and opened up as it still a baby - rest them for five years and drink over the next 40 years - not a fruit bomb like I thought but a dancer of tastes and smells - WE gave it 96 and I can see why

Cassis, fresh coconut, roasted coconut, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs. Presents on the nose as both mannerly and as a tightly-packed bomb of violets. Explodes on the palate in a panoply of fine, fresh and lifted flavors that echo the violet and cassis elements introduced in the aromas. The finish lasts more than a minute and is already suggestive of old Margaux and the greatest of Tuscan Sangiovese. #sangiovese #isoleeolena #toscana

The 2015 hype for Toscana is real! Cep 15 is dense in flavor, but fresh in the mouth.

This is probably my favourite Sangiovese for the money so thought I’d take one for the community & try the new 2015 @ £65 so you know if you should buy

Layers and layers of red berries and flowers dominated the nose. The body was medium to full without feeling heavy. Fine tannins coated the palate, and the layers of red berries lasted for what was a really long and sumptuous finish. Cepparello 2015 drinks more like a top-flight Burgundy than a Sangiovese. Beautiful to enjoy now.

Much more powerful than the regular Chianti Classico, with black fruit and quite powerful, chewy tannins yet finely grained. Excellent structure and good elegance at the same time. One for keeps.
