95 Points - limited Super-Tuscan    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. previous vintage 95 Points Robert Parker:  "The extraordinary 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."

The Margaux of Tuscany. High-toned, intensely floral, crushed little red berries, roast game juices. Impeccable texture, weightless.

16+/20 (88+/100) Закрытый аромат с едва различимыми нотами ванили, чёрного перца и черники. Тельное с высокой, резкой кислотностью и интенсивными, вяжущими танинами. Вкус насыщеннее аромата: черника и шоколад. Безусловно, у вина хороший потенциал и со временем оно себя покажет, но сейчас его пить не нужно.

Very young, very balanced, very good. Bright cherry, really balanced oak, vibrant acidity, and soft tannins that disappeared almost magically as the Tuscan sun dipped beneath the horizon. We enjoyed the wine with Medium rare Tuscan steak on a hill overlooking the vineyard in Val D'elsa, Absolutely delicious now, buying more when we return.
