MAGNUMS: RED

Red - CEPPARELLO, Isole e Olena. Tuscany

2011 CEPPARELLO, Isole e Olena. Tuscany (Magnum)

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Isole e Olena (two tiny ancient villages) is situated in the west of the Chianti Classico area, not far from Castellina, about half way between Florence and Siena
Grape Variety: 100% Sangiovese aged in oak (one third new oak; 15% American oak, the rest French) for 18 months
Producer: Paolo de Marchi has run the estate since 1976, forging an international reputation in that time. He has 45 hectares of vines. Although he charges more for his Cabernet, the Cepparello is his flagship wine, the ultimate expression of the estate
Press Reviews: "Good full red. Deep, inviting aromas of red cherry, wildflowers, chocolate and menthol are complicated by minerals. Sweet, dense and highly concentrated, showing complex flavors of dark and red fruits, truffle, earth, minerals and cedar. Pure and precisely delineated, this beauty displays lovely inner-mouth perfume and energy. Builds slowly on the vibrant back end." 94/100, Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com
