MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) H owever, owner and winemaker Paolo di m archi saw great potential in his Sangiovese vines, and at a time when a pure Sangiovese couldn't legally be called Chianti, he created the Super Tuscan Cepparello. m uch has changed over the years in Tuscany, and now Cepparello is no longer considered the outsider. Instead, it's the model by which most producers judge the quality of their Sangiovese. Through that time, Paolo has changed very little, and even the price remains remarkably fair for a wine of this caliber and longevity. In fact, Cepparello is often compared to Brunello di m ontalcino before Chianti Classico, as it outperforms its contemporaries vintage after vintage. ✦ i sole e Olena Cepparello Toscana 2009 VM 95 » $69 "...brings together the radiance and ripeness of a warmer year with the medium-bodied structure of a cooler vintage..one of the wines of the vintage."
