Cepparello 1.5L

CA$250.20

2017

This is the flagship wine of Isole e Olena and is produced from 100% Sangiovese, aged in French oak barrels. Over the years, Paolo has refined his Cepparello by giving it more air during vinification and spending increased time in oak. Although De Marchi started focusing on the use of better quality oak around 1993, it is the increased age of the vineyards themselves that have given Cepparello its overall finesse. This is made from a top selection of the estate’s best vineyards in Barberino Val d’Elsa, in the northern part of Chianti Classico.

The 2017 Cepparello is another in a series of stunningly beautiful Cepparellos from Paolo de Marchi. Bright and beautifully focused in the glass, with tremendous depth, the 2017 is positively stellar from the very first taste. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice, menthol and coffee all open up with a bit of air. Here, too, Paolo De Marchi has done a tremendous job in preserving freshness in the wine. Readers who can muster the patience will be rewarded with a spectacular wine. Drinking window: 2025-2042.
