Isole e Olena Cepparello IGT Toscana 2015

17,10000

The 2015 Cepparello is not immediately accessible. Indeed, the wine took some time to open, and I kept going back to my sample bottle throughout the afternoon at different intervals to check on its progress. There is no doubting the enormous potential of its aging trajectory nor the considerable depth of fruit in its current youthful state. However, all those aromatic elements of fruit, spice, tar, tobacco and grilled herb still need to find harmony before they sing in chorus. The mouthfeel is chiseled and tight, and this is where you really sense the potential of its longevity. Some 42,000 bottles were made. This wine is aged in mostly French oak, with 5% American oak.

Description

• Paolo di Marchi of Isole e Olena is regarded and spoken of in the same vein as Antinori and Gaja in leading the drive for quality for Italy. He is of course much less known.
• But he is a traditionalist who is credited with doing the most work with Tuscany, and indeed Italy’s, signature varietal, Sangiovese.
• He created this 100% Sangiovese from Tuscany, which was not permitted at the time and was designated a Vino da Tavola only.
• It is today the benchmark for 100% Sangiovese from Tuscany
