2012 Isole e Olena

SKU: isoleeolenacepparello12

"This is magnificent. Radiant, pliant and super-expressive, this offers magnificent intensity, with silky tannins wrapped around a core of rich, dark-toned fruit. The intensity of the fruit suggests a warm vintage, but the structure is more medium in body and typical of a cooler year. Today, the 2012 gives the impression it will drink well pretty much upon release, but history has taught me Cepparello often shuts down in bottle. Either way, the 2012 is superb."

  • It is extremely pleasing to interact with businesses that actually do care that they deliver what they promise for the customer—and more. I have sampled the 2009 Sojourn and found it excellent—a good recommendation on your part.
