Everything in place if a bit tightly wound. Great balance of fruit, tannin, and acid.

Truly Classico: dark cherry and star anise, draws you in like a flower. Bright, elegant red fruit flavors, full but light on its feet, into a silky finish. Bravo Paolo!

Beautiful garnet color. Mild, dusty spice notes, shy red fruits, and nice tannin/acid balance.

Light body, light tannins...at the risk of sounding simple, a grape flavor. Nice with my burger on this pleasant fall afternoon.

Studiously background-y. Rustic and mineral-driven; a perfect pizza pairing.

One of my favorite wine memories is the night I had dinner sitting next to Isole e Olena's Paolo De Marchi. We talked about his love for his family, his passion for winemaking and drank a lot of his incredible wine. I'm really enjoying this #ChiantiClassico tonight with Vento d'Estate cheese from @olssonsfinefoods #isoleeolena #paolodemarchi #Sangiovese @princetoncorkscrew #TuscanWine
