Other than Montevertine's 'Pergole Torte', Isole e Olena's Cepparello was the groundbreaking 100% Sangiovese that paved the way for the so-called Super Tuscan movement. Winemaker Paolo de Marchi took the lead at his family's Isole e Olena winery and firmly believed their estate's Sangiovese had the complexity, power and elegance to stand alone as opposed to Chianti Classico's imposition that it must be blended with accessory varietals. Also bucking the trend of fermenting and aging the wine in Slavonian oak, Cepparello marked the second Sangiovese to be aged in barrique after the venerable 'Tignanello'. Today, Cepparello maintains the tradition set forth by de Marchi to break the trend. The wine still only features Sangiovese and is aged in 1/3 new barrique which adds a true dimension without distracting, something seldom seen anywhere in Tuscany.
