Natalie's Score: 90/100

Produced from 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah wine grapes, Isole e Olena 2015 is a juicy, silky Chianti Classico with ripe dark cherry, berry, savoury spice and dried herb flavours on the palate. The Insole e Olean estate is located in the heart of the Chianti region between the historic cities of Florence and Siena in Tuscany. Great acidity for food. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair this Tuscan beauty with a Ribollita soup.

Chianti Classico food pairings: ravioli, beef stew, pizza, pork chops.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Tuscany wine region, Isole e Olena 2015 is a fleshy, juicy Chianti Classico produced from 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah wine grapes. Silky on the palate with fresh red cherry, dark berry, dried garrigue herbs and savoury spice flavours on the palate. The Insole e Olean estate is located in the heart of the Chianti region between the historic cities of Florence and Siena in Tuscany. Great acidity for food. Enjoy now and for the next five year. Pair with a bison filet mignon in red wine and red berry sauce. - 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.
