Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Lower alcohol than past years; better balance, less VA...and better for it. Fine, dusty and rare beef-bloody with an attractive, resinous top note. This should be a real treat in 3-4 years. #isoleeolena #chianticlassico — 4 months ago

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

This 80% Sangiovese Chianti Classico delivers the usual red fruit, red cherry flavours. Full bodied and smooth in the mouth, the acidity and fine tannins deliver a well balanced wine. Good example from a good vintage. $29 in Ontario.

Isole e Olena

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Cassis, fresh coconut, roasted coconut, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs. Presents on the nose as both mannerly and as a tightly-packed bomb of violets. Explodes on the palate in a panoply of fine, fresh and lifted flavors that echo the violet and cassis elements introduced in the aromas. The finish lasts more than a minute and is already suggestive of old Margaux and the greatest of Tuscan Sangiovese. #sangiovese #isoleeolena #toscana — 7 months ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

Tack room, raspberry, roses. Typical lifted Isole style, with just the tiniest touch of va. The best Classico of the vintage? #isoleeolena #sangiovese #chianticlassico — a year ago

Med - intensity and complexity. Nose was driven by red cherry, red berries, leather, and herbs. An awkward pallet with disjointed acid and a slight metallic note. #isoleeolena #chianticlassico #sangiovese #tuscany #italy #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago
