Isole e Olena is one of our favourite Tuscan producers. This is a modern styled (bright and pure fruited) expression of Chianti Classico which we like. Fresh dark cherry core with hint of ripe lemon zest complexity. Medium bodied and smooth tannins make this wine approachable on its own but we recommend it with food due to the bright acidity. Medium + length. Drink now till 2025.
