Just opened another bottle

This wine is improving significantly...just had another bottle. Much more multi-faceted with a spectacular, lingering array of candied cherry and cream notes. Fantastic.

Excellent, dark fruit and amazingly well balanced. I had with braised lamb pasta and was fantastic. I wish I had more than 2 bottles left.

Brilliantly elegant

Love everything from Isole and this is no exception. Graceful and gorgeous. I don't know if I can keep my hands off my last two bottles for another 5 years but I'm going to try.

As advertised a beautiful wine, wonderful deep dark purple color and smooth and lingering aftertaste.

Finally...

a Super-Tuscan that tastes like Tuscany! This wine has wonderful aromas of crushed red flowers and cherries. Fresh and clean in the mouth, described by many at the table as silky and sophisticated with light tobacco notes. Easily my favorite Tuscan estate. Good choice WA!!

The right wine for celebrating food and friends

Finally got around to trying this wine and it was well worth the wait. Smooth, medium to full-bodied without being heavy and the essence of Sangiovese. The nose was wonderful - it announced to everyone at the table "I'm Italian and you're in for a treat." Went well with oxtail ravioli and braised lamb shank, and was just fine for sipping after we finished the meal. I provide the wines for such events and this bottle, along with the 2013 Giovanni Almondo Arneis impressed everyone.

something special

beautifully balanced, medium bodied, a lovely bottle of wine

lovely!

very smooth and balanced wine..

Cepparello

Dark fruit, developes after opening, with or without food. Medium to full bodied, rich with long finish. Love it.

2006 Isole e Olena Cepparello Toscana Rosso

A fairly decent wine but there are many other wines that are better at lower prices.

Young

This wine is very young and needs considerable time in the cellar. Although smooth, flavors of tobaco, herbs and spice predominate. After a few years of cellaring the fruit may finally begin to showcase.

Disappointing

Completely unimpressed. Uncorked to reveal a good floral bouquet, but the taste didn't live up to the hype. Very thin and uninspiring taste ... no fruit, lacks complexity with no finish. I'm hoping this was just a bad bottle ... we'll try another bottle sometime.

Very disappointing wine
