94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "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. Drink: 2020-2035. (Sep 2020)"
94 points James Suckling: "Love the aromas of brambleberries, sweet tea, tobacco and raspberries. It’s medium-to full-bodied with pretty integration of purple fruit, spices and fine tannins. So delicious to drink now. (8/24/20)"
