Isole e Olena Cepparello 2019

Size: 750ml

Antonio Galloni, Vinous: 96, Wine Advocate: 97

"This 100% Sangiovese Super Tuscan is intense and ruby in color. On the nose a complex bouquet ranging from floral to wild berries with hints of spice. The palate is characterized by red cherries, earthy with a depth of complex, savory acidity and soft tannins." —winemaker

"One of the icon wines of Tuscany, the Isole e Olena 2019 Cepparello is all Sangiovese crafted by the loving hands of a winemaking legend, the great Paolo De Marchi (who finalized the sale of his beloved estate when this wine hit the market). Indeed, this wine opens a discussion on the future of this celebrated IGT Toscana, a wine that followed a strict vision and style under De Marchi. It is elegant and rich with fine aromas of black and purple fruit. It ferments in oak and ages in French barrique for 20 months, with one-third new oak. With 58,000 bottles released, this is a sure candidate for long cellar aging." —Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Cepparello has closed down quite a bit since I tasted it last year, as if all of its energy is focused inward. That won't be an issue in another few years' time, but for now readers should resist any temptation to open bottles. Time in the glass brings out gorgeous Sangiovese fruit, along with hints of blood orange, spice, cedar, mint and tobacco, all wrapped together by plush, silky contours. The purity of the fruit is just striking. In 2019, Cepparello is more finesse than power. I expect it will age beautifully over the next several decades." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Johnnie Walker King George V Blended Scotch Whisky Size: 750ml

13410
"King George V was created to celebrate the Royal Warrant given to the Walker family in 1934 to mark their exceptional quality. This blend includes Port Ellen, a highly prized malt whose distillery no longer exists. King George V has more restraint and sophistication than the Blue Label. The smoke is supplied from the unique, closed distillery of Port Ellen and is powerful, slow and resonant. It's a slower whisky to evolve but has enormous depth." —producer

"The 2018 Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino is a billant ruby red. The aromas are very rich, fine and complex with references to spices, small red fruits and some more exotic suggestions. Structured, well balanced with silky tannins and freshness and pleasant long finish." —winemaker
