Collezione Privata Toscana IGT Chardonnay 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Chardonnay Collezione Privata is a wine of uncommon pedigree and depth. Lemon peel, dried pear, chamomile, white pepper and crushed rocks infuse the 2021 with layers of complexity. I especially admire the sense of vertical drive here. Readers will find a serious Chardonnay for the dinner table. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2023)

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Garnet transparent. Oak. Cherry, raisin, leather, spices, licorice. Tannic, acidic at initial. One hour, getting smoother. But lots of tannin. 2nd day, much better!! 3rd day, tannin is better than before. 4th day, still good. Quite robust and powerful. It should be good 10 years later to wait for tannins’ melt. 15 @2950, wine plus - Ambassador, 240604 — 11 days ago

A Sofia Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2018

Sofia’s favorite vineyard plot. A “smoke show” we called it. Generally the 19s were the standouts — beautifully balanced and giving all of the dried herb and earthy notes typical of great Chianti Classico — but this was an exception, opulent and spicey (allspice, cinnamon, cedar) and so so fragrant. Stay in the look out for these wines — Sofia (the estate manager) and Giocomo (vineyard manger and cellar master, most recently of Isole & Olena) are making some really intentional and pretty wines here. — a year ago

Collezione Privata

Isole Olena Toscana Chardonnay 2018

This wine is medium gold. The nose opens up to a bouquet of stone and tropical fruit notes such as ripe peach, apricot, papaya, starfruit, melon, and cantaloupe.

Other primary aromas include orange peel, wet stone, white blossom, and salinity. This wine also has secondary notes of sweet cream, brioche, pencil shavings, and vanilla.

The flavors on the palate are consistent. It’s a full bodied white with high alcohol (14%) and has a rich mouthfeel, balanced by a dose of acidity.
