From the Tuscany wine region, Isole e Olena 2018 Chianti Classico is dry, medium-bodied and vibrant with ripe dark cherry, sarsaparilla, red plum, dried savoury herbs and subtly spiced. Tannins are firm. Good now, better in 2022. Produced from mostly Sangiovese grapes sourced from the Insole e Olean estate in Tuscany.

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