Isole e Olena-Chianti Classico-"Gran Selezione"-2010

Isole e Olena
Chianti Classico
"Gran Selezione"

$225.00 Net

80% Sangiovese, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Syrah. Sangiovese and Cab Franc grapes are fermented in open top oak vats. Syrah’s tank fermented then put into oak. Spends two years in French barriques and then two years in larger oak casks prior to bottling.

"The 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is extraordinary. A wine of pedigree and class, the 2010 boasts magnificent intensity and depth yet never comes across as heavy. The flavors are layered, nuanced and beautifully delineated in the glass. Plum, black cherry, spice, menthol and sweet spices are laced into the exquisite finish. The 2010 is a stunner today, but also has plenty of upside for the future. A reduction of time in barrel vis-a-vis the 2006 has paid off handsomely. The 2010 is going to be expensive, but it is worth every penny. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot round out the blend." Antonio Galloni, September 2015
