88 points "Aromas of blackberry, cedar and vanilla. Balanced and reserved, with a medium body, good fruit and a fresh finish. Refined. Best after 2007. 3,600 cases made. –JS" Best 2007-

94 points "The 2003 Cepparello (100% Sangiovese aged in French oak, 1/3 new) opens with an intense nose of very ripe fruit and sweet toasted oak. Round and supple on the palate, it presents terrific balance in its expression of the hot vintage while preserving a surprising amount of freshness. It may not quite have the finesse of the 2004, but that is really splitting hairs at this high level of achievement. It is an awesome effort from the inspired Paolo De Marchi. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018." Best 2008-2018
