Isole e Olena IGT Toscana 'Cepparello' 2010

This ‘flagship’ wine from Isola e Olena is comprised of 100% Sangiovese, aged in French oak barrels for 18-20 months. Fruit for ‘Cepparello’ comes from some of the best vineyard sites in northern Chianti, with older vines giving way to high quality, concentrated fruit. Their 2010 bottling is aromatic and spicy, with developed flavors of fruit, spice, and forest floor. Delicious now, but will drink beautifully through 2030.

Sangiovese

Italy’s most-planted red and one of its noblest: a Tuscan icon (Chianti Classico; Brunello) that wanders through many regions. Crisp cherry-scented with a woodsy savor; Italy’s answer to Pinot Noir.
