Iconisch hoge Score’s voor de Super Tuscans van Isole e Olena

Beste wijnliefhebbers,

Chianti Classico en Cepparello van het Toscaanse Isole e Olena zijn de wijnen die doorgaans in de schijnwerpers komen te staan, maar er is ook een excellente Super Tuscan.

Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata 2016 heeft de astronomisch hoge score van 98 punten bij Vinous – Antonio Galloni. De score bij Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate lijkt dan haast bescheiden: 96 punten. Een grote wijn uit een groot jaar. Drinken: ergens tussen 2022 en 2040.

Een nu we het toch over Super Tuscans hebben. Syrah Collezione de Marchi heb ik ooit ingezet als piraat* bij een proeverij noord Rhône tussen grootheden als Côte Rôtie en Hermitage. Vinous en Robert Parker geven de wijn (2017) 96 en 94 punten. Drinken tussen 2020 en 2040.

Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata 2016

Vinous: ”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.– Antonio Galloni”

Robert Parker, Monica Larner: ”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.”

Syrah Collezione Privata 2017

Vinous: “Isole e Olena 2017 Syrah is powerful, dense and savory. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle anytime soon. Black cherry, plum, licorice, espresso, chocolate and leather build as this brooding Tuscan Syrah shows off its considerable character. The 2017 is a real powerhouse. Give it a few years in bottle.”

Robert Parker, Monica Larner: ”Here’s a hot vintage Syrah from the heart of Tuscany. The Isole e Olena 2017 Syrah Collezione Privata opens to dark fruit aromas with toasted spice and charred earth. The wine hints at the heat and dryness of the vintages, but instead of jammy aromas (because there are none of those here), it produces seared or scorched aromas. Indeed, there is a defined note of barbecue smoked or burnt meat that lingers through to the end. The wine is rather tempered and measured in the mouth, with linearity and fine tannic contours. A mere 4,480 bottles were made.”
