Isole E Olena Vin Santo del Chianti Classico 2006

Member Review by coryhwhite357:

This is a fantastic dessert wine. The nose is full of caramel and smells thick. The color is dark and rich, similar to iced tea, but the tone and depth is so developed that you know it is something special. The initial taste is similar to maple syrup, but the lingering finish is all caramel. The wine is smooth and bold, but not sharp. It has a great mouth feel in that they sweetness envelopes the palate and takes the place of a creme brulee anyday!
