Isole e Olena Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2010

$69.99

Cepparello is one of Italy's most iconic wines and a reflection of Paolo De Marchi's career. Today Cepparello, named after a small seasonal stream among the vineyards, is a selection of the estates best fruit. Soils primarily Galestro, vineyards orientated Southwest and are 400 meters above sea-level. Paolo believes that vintage is part of terrior and wines of origin reflect the vintage. Limited. 95 Points Robert Parker:  "The extraordinary 2010 Cepparello (100% Sangiovese aged up to 18 months in oak, one-third new) presents fine nuances of red berry, cherry, spice, tar, licorice, wet earth and forest leaf. The bouquet is very elegant but this wine delivers power too with tight structure that immediately wraps around the palate. Somewhere in the crossroads between tradition and modernity, Cepparello is a stunning wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030."

A baby. Wish this had more time to decant, but tobacco nose and black cherry, plum and tobacco body with some spice. Dark color and the oak is evident.

2010 vintage. Beautiful sangio! Opened up with tar and red fruits, softened to ripe red berries and flowers. Love

18/20 (94/100) Красивый и насыщенный аромат с нотами вишневого варенья, черники, ментола, шоколада, чёрного перца и имбиря. Мощная структура: тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, ещё суховатыми танинами. Ягодное во вкусе с продолжительным шоколадным послевкусие. Яркое, молодое вино с потенциалом, но уже сейчас доставляет удовольствие.
