Tasting Notes:

95 points "Knockout nose of floral red berries, red cherry syrup, coffee and minerals. Then suave, silky and plump, with harmonious acidity giving life and definition to the raspberry, plum and delicate licorice flavors. Features wonderful sweetness..”"

93 points "Isole e Olena's 2006 Cepparello (100% Sangiovese) reveals superb density and richness in a surprisingly medium-bodied style for this vintage. Candied red fruit, flowers, menthol and sweet herbs emerge from the glass with almost liqueur-like sweetness. The wine possesses outstanding balance and a long, sweet finish, with subtle notes of tar, licorice and herbs that make an appearance on the close. This is an elegant Cepparello that combines the ripeness of the vintage in a mid-weight, ethereal style. " Best 2009-2019

"Pure and concentrated with an almost liqueur-ish intensity on the nose, and a sprinkling of charcoal dust and pepper. Lithe and polished; tannins certainly still present, but there’s more than enough fruit to match them. A serious wine, with a breezy air. "
