STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Paolo de Marchi and his wife Marta run the family estate in the heart of Chianti. Paolo comes from a family with three generations of experience winemaking in Piedmont. Isole e Olena has 49 hectares of vines, the oldest of which were planted in 1958. Paolo was one of the first producers to plant new lower yielding clones of Sangiovese, which produce better grapes and therefore better wines.
17.5 Points Jancis Robinson "Lustrous mid ruby. A concentrated cherry nose loaded with dark spice. Succulent, tangy cherry fruit with a mint oak note. Building up in concentration on the finish but without losing its freshness or elegance. A wine that never disappoints, regardless of vintage." Jancis Robinson, June 2021
