Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2014 Product #32879 (In Stock)
Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2014 Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2014

A long-time Chianti benchmark that always runs to the more elegant side of Sangiovese is prettier than ever here.

"A tangy and fresh red with plum, dried lemon and berry character. Medium body, bright fruit and a fruity finish."  James Suckling 91 points

"This wine offers excellent value and with 160,000 bottles produced, it should be easy to find. The 2014 Chianti Classico is 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah, aged in small and large oak barrels for one year. It offers beautifully polished and fine aromas of wild berry, toasted almond, grilled herb and blue violet. Compared to its peers from this difficult vintage, this wine offers noticeably more definition and depth."Wine Advocate 90 points

Isole E Olena Rosso Cepparello 2013 Product #32798 (In Stock)
Isole E Olena Rosso Cepparello 2013 Isole E Olena Rosso Cepparello 2013

Stunning Sangiovese indeed.

"The 2013 Cepparello is superb. Polished, silky nuanced and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 exudes freshness and energy from start to finish. Succulent red cherry, plum, lavender and rose petal are some of the signatures. Aging in French oak shapes the wine nicely without marking it excessively. The purity of the flavors is striking. This is an especially cool, savory Cepparello built on finesse and persistence rather than power. Rain during harvest robbed the wine of some of its breadth. Otherwise, this is a striking Cepparello. I can't wait to see how it ages."  Vinous (Galloni) 96 points

"Hands down beautiful, The 2013 Cepparello is a creation of stunning elegance and balance. A pure expression of Sangiovese, this wine undergoes a sophisticated oak regime that sees ageing in various barrel sizes and barrique of various ages. It lives 18 months of its life in French and 3% American oak before being released. This vintage (that is cooler compared to 2012 and 2011) delivers an exceptionally soft and mellow bouquet with slightly sweet sensations of ripe cherry and fragrant blue flower. Soft tones of spice and cinnamon bring up the rear. The wine is medium to full in terms of body weight, and the finish is driven by cool tones of balsam and menthol herb. The 2013 Cepparello is one of my favorite wines of the vintage."Wine Advocate 97 points
