Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 2011


Isole e Olena is located between Florence and Siena in Tuscany, and is a name not infrequently seen on Australian shelves.  The 2011 release of their Chianti Classico is a good one.  Ever so slightly cloudy in appearance, it has aromatics of fresh red plums, sour cherry and florals.  The fresh fruited character is particularly vibrant.  The palate sees long length and balance achieved, with florals and a fruity expression of cherry prominent.  This is a quite supple and enjoyable sangiovese, and is ready to drink now.
