90% Sangiovese & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Hand-picked grapes are immediately fermented in the modern cellars of Ceppaiano. The ageing takes place for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Dark and intense ruby red colour. Complex nose with multiple layers of primary fruity aromas of wild roses, cherries, mint, cassis and liquorice. Secondary aromas of resin, oak, leather and toasted sweet coffee. Intriguing taste mixing sweet flavour of white chocolate, vanilla and cedar on a buttery bed of oak verticalized by a gentle acidity. Long finish. Wonderful Sangiovese – Cabernet blend, Brunello style.
With 2004 and 2005 vintages the first Ceppaiano wines were born, dedicated and inspired to the work of the painter Violetta Viola, an extraordinary and charismatic artist. On the label of this wine one of her works is reproduced. Before her early death she left a collection of works endowed with great charm and an extreme communicative power, which today are part of Ceppaiano’s cultural heritage."
91/100 James Suckling (2013 Vintage)
"Dried cherry and chocolate aromas. Medium body, integrated tannins and a flavourful finish. Pretty now, but it will come together with a little bottle age. Try in 2019."
