Isole e Olena, Chianti Classico 2016Regular price $34.00 Save $-34.00
Two vineyards in the heart of Chianti Classico were joined in the 1950s, forming what is now called Isole e Olena. The de Marchi family got its start in winemaking three generations ago in the mountains of Northern Italy (Piedmont), but moved to Tuscany for the opportunity to create a larger vineyard property. Paolo de Marchi is the current generation winemaker. Over 43 years, he has earned a reputation as “Mr. Sangiovese” by experimenting with 100% Sangiovese wines in a region where a classic blending recipe is locked into disciplinare rules.
