Occasional Wine Note: Holy Sangiovese! Sangiovese at its most elegant. Floral bouquet, ripe black cherries, orange zest, dried herbs, baking spices, and a little bit of minerality here with balanced acidity, and soft tannins. This is a special wine. Oh, and it made the 2023 Wine Spectator Top 100!

    Critic Score: 97

    The 2020 Cepparello is dense, powerful and soaring in intensity. A dark, almost somber Cepparello, the 2020 possesses remarkable depth from start to finish. Black cherry, plum, gravel, dried herbs and lavender build in a vivid, stunningly beautiful Cepparello that hits all the right notes.

    Critic Score: 96

    Supple and smooth, the 2020 Cepparello brings Sangiovese to soaring heights in a manner only Paolo De Marchi can manage. This is his second to last vintage before he would retire and sell this historic estate. The wine opens to medium to full-bodied concentration with dark plum and redcurrant. Those cede to sweet spice, earth, crushed stone, rusty nail and candied orange peel. Give the wine more time to flesh out with cellar age. It registers a powerful 15% alcohol content.
