Ceppaiano Violetta 2009

Product code: 10CEPP2B2009

Dark and intense ruby colour. On the nose, multiple layers of primary fruit aromas, namely wild roses, cherries, mint, cassis and liquorice with secondary aromas of resin, oak, leather and toasted sweet coffee. The intriguing taste mixes sweet flavours of white chocolate, vanilla and cedar on a buttery bed of oak, lifted by a gentle acidity and a long finish.

Production information

Producer: Ceppaiano

Located near Livorno on the Tuscan Coast, south of Pisa, the estate was founded in the 19th Century by the Castellani family who still own it today. The family connection is reinforced by the stunning labels which replicate the artwork of Violette Viole, a 1960s Italian artist and the mother-in-law of winemaker Piergiorgio Castellani.
