Isole e Olena Cepparello

74,30 €

The emblematic wine remains a flagship of the Italian vineyard and takes its name from a small stream that runs in the Isole e Olena estate. It began production in 1980 from 100% Sangiovese and belongs to the famous category of Super Tuscans, as in that time it was now allowed to produce Chianti relying solely on Sangiovese. But Cepparello speaks of Tuscany exalting the character of the variety and the terroir of the area with Paolo de Marchi avoiding to distort it during winemaking. Cepparello is a great wine not because of its imposing concentration, its robustness or the use of expensive oak. Instead it holds primarily as its flag, the terroir it comes from and connotations of finesse, elegance, precision, subtlety and freshness.

More info

There is a careful grape selection from the best vineyards of the property and the wine is vinified in large botti of oak aiming for the elegant expression of the fruit. A wonderful nose of wild cherry, plum which mingle with sweet and pungent spices coming from the wonderful job done with the oak. Full-bodied without being tiring or mellow, and how could it be else since the acidity makes its presence felt constantly delivering exquisite balance to the wine. The ripe tannins are worthy for a lesson in finesse and find their path carved by the wonderful fruit rewarding the wine with a structure that will help it age in an amazing manner. This magnificent wine is a constant balancing act between power and delicacy.
