Isole e Olena Cepparello

355,00 €

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. Despite the difficult vintage 2014 the wine shows a beautiful evolution.

More info

2014 being a cooler year than usual Cepparello remains a reference point for the area. Juicy, with fresh fruit, spice, leather and botanical character that brings in mind green tea with just a touch of vanilla coming from oak ageing. Refined, delicate with lively acidity and beautifully integrated tannins, it has enough nerve and time in the future to evolve perfectly. Fascinating with an explosive character.

    Expressive yet quiet on the nose. Excellent aromatic clarity, in what is definitely a clear expression of the wonderful floral aromas of Moscato. The freshness of the notes of green tea leaves, adds finesse to the sweetness of the fruit that reminisces of past summers. Imagine having in front of you a rich fruit-salad of peaches, apricots, grapes and...
