The schnizzle! 95 pt. (RP) wine under $50.
2004 was a great vintage in Tuscany and the Isole e Olena, Ceparello, IGT is 100% Sangiovese, it spends 14 months in barrel. Really low yields (Only a pound and a half per plant for those of you who care.) The estate was founded in the 1960s by a man who made his way to Tuscany via Piedmont. Yahoo!
The wine is very concentrated, but still traditional in style, a little dusty but also has a great long, incredibly sexy texture. Give it a go... It's Buzzin' like Shwayze. (I know what she was on - by the way - Ceparello. And she did fall in love - by the way - with Ceparello.)
Available at Woodland Hills Wine Co. for $49.95.
