Taste Isole e Olena, one of the Super Tuscan greats, August 24 at Siena
August 24: Taste the wines of Isole e Olena, one of Tuscany’s greatest producers, including the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon which received a whopping 96+/100 score from top Italian wine reviewer Antonio Galloni.
“The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Black cherry jam, crème de cassis, smoke, plums, menthol, licorice and violets form a stunning backdrop as the 2011 opens up in the glass. Sumptuous and layered yet also quite fresh (especially for the year), the 2011 possesses superb balance and exceptional finesse. The intensity of the fruit nearly buries the tannins, but they are there. My impression is that the 2011 will offer a long and wide window of pure drinking pleasure.”
