Isole e Olena may not be one of Chianti's oldest estates, but it generally ranks out as one of the finest when I taste through their wines each year.  Isole e Olena is the creator of one of Tuscany's finest Super-Tuscan wines, Cepparello. It's unusual to speak of a producer's Chianti Classico bottling as on par with their flaship wine, but in this case the comparison holds water. The wine is powerful and complex. The drought-driven 2017 vintage gives a ripe, rich style that doesn't lack in structure. The fruit profile is ripe and candied, but with cured meat, spices, and Tuscan herbs to balance the exuberance. It spends 12 months in a combination of 225-liter barrels (only 5% were new), 4,000-liter and 2,700-liter casks adds subtle nutty complexity. This is a near perfect pizza/pasta wine.
