Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 2010
Dark fruit and pressed flowers on the nose. Tight, young and grippy palate with racy plum and cherry fruit, touches of pepper and an aromatic, herby finish. A wine of depth and fascinating complexity.
This stunning Chianti Classico has an intense perfume of violet, rose and iris accented with scents of truffle and forest berry. The wildly delicious palate presents
a core of juicy cherry layered with sweet pipe tobacco,
mint and spice with a hint of well-integrated oak. It
has great energy, with vibrant acidity and bracing but
refined tannins. Drink 2016–2025.
Good ruby-red. Lovely floral aromas of plum, redcurrant, sweet spices and violet. Sweet, lush and round, with a slightly high-toned quality that adds appeal to the red fruit flavors. Finishes broad and long, with ripe tannins.
