98 points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "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."
Proudly displaying its pure Cabernet heart in a stately fashion. I love it because it tastes exactly like Cab and it tastes exactly like Tuscany -- I can have both worlds. Gorgeous fruit purity, texture, and freshness allow it to be enjoyed at this early stage (enjoyed is an understatement). By far one of my favorite Cabernets we sell and for that matter, that I've ever tasted, Isole's Cab has also become a favorite of our discerning Cabernet-loving customers. - Marcus
