Isole e Olena Cepparello 2004
Right from the word go this screamed charm and elegance. There are sour notes mixed with earth and spice but it is the food friendly nature and the extreme length that got my juices going. I had this wine at my wedding and it was singing that night but today it has taken the quality level up two notches!!!! The tannin structure mesmerises you, taking you in for a long kiss good night. Every other wine served on the night paled in comparison. Breath taking!
Rated: 97+ (the only thing holding me back from a 98 is my impression that this will get better)
Drink: 2015 - 2024
