Cepparello is one of Italy's most iconic wines and a reflection of Paolo De Marchi's career. Today Cepparello, named after a small seasonal stream among the vineyards, is a selection of the estates best fruit. Soils primarily Galestro, vineyards orientated Southwest and are 400 meters above sea-level. Paolo believes that vintage is part of terrior and wines of origin reflect the vintage.
The 2017 Cepparello is another in a series of stunningly beautiful Cepparello's from Paolo de Marchi. Bright and beautifully focused in the glass, with
tremendous depth, the 2017 is positively stellar from the very first taste. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice, menthol and coffee all open up
with a bit of air. Here, too, Paolo De Marchi has done a tremendous job in preserving freshness in the wine. Readers who can muster the patience will
be rewarded with a spectacular wine. 97pts, Drink: 2025-2042, Antonio Galloni, Sep 2020, Vinous
