“Born in Piedmont but now a fully fledged inhabitant of Chianti, Paolo De Marchi is one of the most authoritative and respected protagonists of the Italian wine sector, despite his natural shyness. Whichever the vine species involved, De Marchi obtains wines of a precise territorial character from his 120 acres of vineyards on mainly marly soil. These wines are not to be reckoned by weight or volume, but generally provide a sensation of elegance and character. The ‘mission’ inherent in the winemaker's craft is summed up by the producer in a phrase: ‘you have to try to understand the sense of a land’. It certainly seems as though here, he’s been able to do just that.” - Guida Espresso Vini d’Italia 2012

“One of the highest expressions of Sangiovese currently available, Cepparello is, today as it was yesterday, an outstanding wine of rare splendour.” - Guida Gambero Rosso 2011

“Earthy and full-bodied in depth, seductive as to tannic elegance and its ability to bring pleasantness and territorial pertinence to mind. Another Great Wine with enormous potential for development.” - Guida Vini Slow 2014

“Ripe fruit, hints of violets and cherries, delicate balsamic nuances: a many-faceted, invitingly aromatic ensemble; initially decisive to the palate, elegant and structured development, clean, savoury, very tenacious finish.” - Guida Espresso Vini d’Italia 2014

“Powerful and full-bodied, it reveals smooth tannins perfectly blended throughout the structure. Long mineral aftertastes.” - AIS Duemilavini 2012

“Paolo De Marchi was among those responsible for the rebirth and revival of Chianti Classico and now rightly enjoys the fame and image acquired by his enterprise. Back when no one would have imagined, Cepparello demonstrated just how far Sangiovese could go. The various Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay wines in the Collection also contributed strongly towards establishing the terroir and principal denomination, thereby lending a further helping hand to his credibility.” - AIS Duemilavini 2011

“Experiments have been conducted to establish the density at which Sangiovese gives the best results, and the most valid clones were selected.” - Guida Vini Slow 2012
