Winemaker Notes

The grapes are grown on the Isole o Olena estate which covers 290 hectares in the heart of the Chianti Classico hills between Florence and Siena, of which 49 are planted with vines and 42 are in production. The vineyards are approximately 400 meters above sea level and face south west. It's an elegant and balanced Chianti Classico that is medium bodied, with ripe cherry fruits and spice. Cedar notes are present on the nose... View More

Critical Acclaim

D 96
Decanter

Dark fruit and pressed flowers on the nose. Tight, young and grippy palate with racy plum and cherry fruit, touches of pepper and an aromatic, herby finish. A wine of depth and fascinating complexity.

Wine Enthusiast

This stunning Chianti Classico has an intense perfume of violet, rose and iris accented with scents of truffle and forest berry. The wildly delicious palate presents a core of juicy cherry layered with sweet pipe tobacco, mint and spice with a hint of well-integrated oak. It has great energy, with vibrant acidity and bracing but refined tannins. Drink 2016–2025.

Good ruby-red. Lovely floral aromas of plum, redcurrant, sweet spices and violet. Sweet, lush and round, with a slightly high-toned quality that adds appeal to the red fruit flavors. Finishes broad and long, with ripe tannins.

Isole e Olena

View all wine
Isole e Olena was formed in the 1950's when the DeMarchi family purchased two vineyards in the heart of the Chianti Classico region and combined them into one. Since the 1970's, Paolo DeMarchi has become a leading winemaker in the region by experimenting to improve the Chianti blends and by making wines from 100% Sangiovese (which he labels Cepparello). The goal is producing complex wines with good aging potential.
