The critics have nothing but love for this ‘nothing-but-Sangiovese' stunner from Tuscany. As this house has matured, their flagship wine has just gotten better and better. The vines are older now and the time spent in oak is longer. Galloni calls this vintage “another in a series of stunningly beautiful Cepparellos from Paolo DeMarchi.” Complex and built to age, Paolo has pulled off another winner – be sure to claim your trophy from your Scout.

The 2017 Cepparello is another in a series of stunningly beautiful Cepparellos 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.
