Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer ISOLE E OLENA
Here is my updated review for the 2018. Deep intense purple colour. The nose is intense and complex with mature, ripe, plum-cherry-casss fruit accompanied by cedary, red licorice notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, dense, well structured, slightly spicy, intense, ripe, plum-cherry-red-and-black-currrant fruit flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, complex, grippy, sandalwood-tinged finish. Still very youthful, this 100% Sangiovese has 15% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L.17.19 on the back label. The recommended 2017 (***/***+) was last released on August 21, 2021 at $128.95. CSPC 12818

TASTING NOTE: A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2018 Cepparello is a beautiful expression that speaks to the classic and most exemplary side of this versatile and deeply expressive grape. This vintage is especially bright and ethereal with a true sense of luminosity and clarity that radiates from both the wine's appearance and its fragrant bouquet. Tart cherry and cassis segue to balsam herb and wild violets. To the palate, the wine shows muscle and determination with sweet tannins and impressive depth of flavor. Cepparello remains true to its unique identity in this vintage. Drink date: 2022-2045. Score - 96 (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Oct. 7, 2021) Price $ 129.95
