Reviews and Ratings

Isole e Olena 2014 is an intense, full-bodied and full-on cherries Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region. Very warm as well with 14.5% alcohol. The Insole e Olean estate is located in the heart of the Chianti region between the historic cities of Florence and Siena in Tuscany. The red wine blend for this Chianti is 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah grapes. Great acidity for food, pair this lush red with your favourite spaghetti and meat sauce dish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
