1997 Isole e Olena, Cepparello, Tuscany, Italy

This wine was tasted vs Tignanello 1997 and cleary won that battle. This wine is a profe of what can be achived with a 100% sangiovese IGT-wine. So much purity and a huge surplus in fruit. Also with chocolate and vanilla. (96+)

Tasted October 2003

1997 Isole e Olena, Cepparello, Tuscany, Italy

Warm plum fruit, with dark berries and chocolate. Minerals is however present, but not with the same nerve as Percarlo. Taste is beautiful velvet tannins and rich on fruit and charm. The wine has lost concentration since I tasted it the first time 1½ year ago and with the softer structure I don’t see it performing well more that 6-7 years from now. (94)

Tasted 1st of April 2005 - Era Ora
