Isole E Olena Chianti Classico (DOCG) 2018 (Italy: Tuscany) (ID# 202)

Name Isole E Olena Chianti Classico (DOCG) 2018 (ID# 202)
Varietal Blend
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "This is a really authentic and beautiful Chianti Classico, offering cherries, orange peel and light undertones of nuts and bark. It’s medium-bodied, very polished and integrated with a fresh, juicy finish." (James Suckling) "This is a terrific value buy from one of the best performing estates in the appellation. Made with 82% Sangiovese that has been blended with 15% Canaiolo and 3% Syrah from a mix of sandstone, galestro and alberese soils. The wine is fresh and fruit forward with bright berry aromas over easy spice and smoky tar." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Supple and racy, the 2019 hints at the greater textural richness and suave tannins found in the Cepparello. Spice, mint, dried cherry and herbs add pretty shades of nuance." (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
