2010 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico - Really nice dark sweet (but not actually sweet) fruit, comforting earthiness and a finely tannic finish.

Wow! This is gorgeous. Very fine CC. Punches way above its weight. Tart red cherry, lovely earthy bit. Dusty tannins. Long finish. Blind, I would have guessed Brunello.

Absolutely fabulous Chianti Classico. Just as great as it was upon release but with more complexity and slightly mellowed character. To me at prime drinking window with plenty of freshness still with the red berry toned pure sangiovese fruit, nice powdery tannins supporting the frame and excellent slightly floral finish.
