Popped and poured; no formal notes. Opened this to sip on while I made sauce for dinner and it hits the spot 👌🏽. The 2019 Isole e Olena CC is clean and expressive with dusty dark cherries, black tea, orange pith, dry earth. Good structure for a variety of meals. Bone dry. A long, slightly bitter finish. A textbook CC. Drink now or over the next 5-10 years.

Perfect example of what a Chianti should be. Medium body and acidity, cherry and spice, and everything nice

Very aromatic and soft, curious what other grapes are in here besides Sangiovese. Tastes very new world, would buy again, crowd pleasing

Delicate, pure, and vibrant cherry. But a little overwhelmed by the spice at Cote.
