Nestled on a perfect hillside in Chianti Classico, Isole e Olena has some of the most coveted vineyards in the entire region. As a 4th generation winemaker in his family Paolo de Marchi has been at the helm of the winery since the 1970s. He spent many harvests in California as well as France, which influenced him to modernize and improve many aspects of viticulture and winemaking in Chianti.

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is among the finest Cabernet Sauvignons in Italy. High altitude sites in Barberino yield a distinctly mid-weight, elegant, savory Cabernet that is all about reserve. Dark plum, espresso, licorice, menthol and sage start to emerge with a bit of air, but the 2016 is a wine that demands cellaring. Over the years, I have had the good fortune to taste every vintage of the Isole e Olena Cabernet. It is one of the great under the radar wines of Tuscany. The 2016 takes its place with the very finest editions." -Vinous

"The Isole e Olena 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata opens nicely to show rich but balanced concentration and generous aromas of dark fruit, plum, exotic spice and fragrant cedar wood. I tasted the wine at two intervals in time, once when the bottle was first opened and a second time the following day from the same bottle. The wine opens generously, showing a fluid and steady evolution of aromas that starts with some tart fruit and forest floor, later to develop into the softer and sensuous flavors I have described above. The tannins are delicately woven into the greater fiber of the wine to offer support without any sharpness. The entire drinking experience is seamless and smooth. Production is 10,000 bottles and 240 magnums." -Monica Larner

Cabernet with perfect poise

This is one cool, supremely stylish Cabernet that favors finesse over opulence. It's bright, lively, and linear, with cassis and violet flavors. Cabernet can be so pretty. It tastes pure and pretty flawless, with a super dialed-in structure and freshness to ensure at least 20+ years of positive development. Of course, it's also pretty great now, and I enjoyed it with steak. Sneaky length. For less than $100 in Cabernet, I don't know how you beat it.
