Isole e Olena Cepparello 2005

86 points

This Tuscan wine has nice weight, doesn’t seem 14% alcohol.

Unfortunately the oak is over-the-top. Dry sawdusty, not sweet. Like chewing on a plank. Oak and fruit tannins coat the mouth, though this aftertaste is quite grapey.

Still, disappointing.

Needs food. And age…. but will it ever come right?
