    Deep ruby. Cola-like notes complicate aromas of black cherry, rhubarb and cocoa. Ripe, smooth and dense, with velvety, seamless flavors of black cherry, plum and spicy oak. Finishes spicy, vibrant and long. This is very impressive but shows less sangiovese perfume than usual.

    The 2009 Cepparello is gorgeous. It brings together the radiance and ripeness of a warmer year with the medium-bodied structure of a cooler vintage. Today the 2009 is a bit reticent and appears headed for a period of dormancy. From time to time hints of its ultimate potential come through in attractive layers of dark red fruit. The rich, textured finish bodes well for the future. Paolo De Marchi describes 2009 as a year with a cold spring and a hot summer that also brought hail in early August. The 2009 Cepparello is clearly one of the wines of the vintage.

The estate is run by Paolo de Marchi, who has been turning out significant and stunning wines for years. The "Cepparello" is dense and intense, but has a subtle finesse that frames lovely, dense, black fruit purity. In addition to its classic Sangiovese-based wines, Isole e Olena also produces Vin Santo, "L'Eremo" Syrah, as well as several new world varieties under the Collezione de Marchi label.
