Each vintage the grapes for the Cepparello are hand-selected from the best sites on the estate in Barberino Val d’Elsa, the northern part of Chianti Classico. The wine is named after a small stream, Borro Cepparello, originating in the highest point on the Isole e Olena estate. The wine is 100% barrel-aged: 1/3 in new, 1/3 in one year old, and the remainder in two year old oak. The Cepparello has potential to age well for 20+ years, yet is made in a style that emphasizes finesse over power at all stages of development. Critic "Paolo de Marchi is in the vanguard of Italy's top rank producers with his switch to screwcaps. This, his top wine, is a stunning expression of Sangiovese, full of youthful, vibrant red cherry and damson skin fruit, with well integrated oak, medium tannins and bags of potential." - Tim Atkin, MW
