6 x 75cl 2016 Isole e Olena `Cepparello`

Italy, Tuscany

2015 was a memorable vintage and the wine shows balance and great structure. Intense aromas of red fruits and cherries along with a touch of spice from the expert use of oak. On the palate, ripe fruit and well-balanced structure produce an elegant wine with soft tannins and long length.”

Producer

The name 'Isole e Olena' came about in the 1950s when two adjoining estates, 'Isole' and 'Olena', were purchased by the De Marchi family and combined to form one. The history of both estates dates back many hundreds of years, and the earliest documentation of the village of Olena goes as far back as the 12th century. During the 1950s, the De Marchi family planted specialised vineyards and expanded the cellars. Today, the estate is run by Paolo De Marchi and his wife Marta. Paolo comes from a family with three generations of winemaking experience in the northern part of Piemonte and his older son, Luca, now runs the family estate there, Proprietà Sperino.
