2011 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico

Wine Enthusiast 93 pts: “Alluring aromas of blue flowers, meat juices, woodland berries and spice jump out of the glass of this blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah. The juicy palate offers a core of dark cherry layered with savory black pepper alongside assertive but elegant tannins.”


James Suckling 90pts: "There's a spicy, light earth and dried cherry character here. Medium body, good fruit and a fresh finish. Bright and citrusy. Delicious young wine. Drink now"

Winemaker's Notes: "The grapes are grown on the Isole o Olena estate which covers 290 hectares in the heart of the Chianti Classico hills between Florence and Siena, of which 49 are planted with vines and 42 are in production. The vineyards are approximately 400 meters above sea level and face south west. It's an elegant and balanced Chianti Classico that is medium bodied, with ripe cherry fruits and spice. Cedar notes are present on the nose and pallet. It is very focused and pretty with fresh acidity and firm tannins."
