Isole E Olena Cepparello 2013
The 2013 Cepparello is a creation of stunning elegance and balance. A pure expression of Sangiovese, this wine undergoes a sophisticated oak regime that sees ageing in various barrel sizes and barrique of various ages. It lives 18 months of its life in French and 3% American oak before being released. This vintage (that is cooler compared to 2012 and 2011) delivers an exceptionally soft and mellow bouquet with slightly sweet sensations of ripe cherry and fragrant blue flower. Soft tones of spice and cinnamon bring up the rear. The wine is medium to full in terms of body weight, and the finish is driven by cool tones of balsam and menthol herb. The 2013 Cepparello is one of my favorite wines of the vintage. Drink 2017-2035.

Nose:
Elevated aromas of dark cherries and blackcurrant laced with dried herbs are followed by vanillin cedar, light tobacco, earth and spice.
Palate:
Moving with an elegant flow across the medium bodied palate there’s an understated richness to the refined black and red currant flavours which are interwoven with subtle fresh herbs, spicy cedar, earth and faint spicy tobacco. Slightly dryish finish with perfectly integrated very finely grained yet structured tannins and a vibrant thread of acidity. Long spicy aftertaste of red and black currant, cedar, subtle fresh herbs and earth. A very polished Cepparello that shows plenty of finesse.
