Description

In the 1950’s Isole e Olena was born when two adjoining estates merged: Isole and Olean. These two properties were purchased by the De Marchi family (originally from Piedmont) taking this estate to new heights. Their attention to detail in both the vineyard and winery has greatly improved the quality of the resulting wines. Such they now have a cult status following and especially for the Cepparello (100% Sangiovese). The Chianti Classico is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 5% Syrah, the little brother of Cepparello but still worth every cent.

Smells

classic aromatics of Sangiovese; red cherries, raspberries, red liquorice and with wonderful, perfumed notes, dried rose petals underpinned by earthy, salty, and slightly herbal nuances.

Tastes

the season has resulted in a delicious wine that is surprisingly drinking well now and doesn’t need a lot of cellaring. It's bright, full of flavour and incredibly moorish, evident by the sweet berry fruit, rose petal perfume, cedar, liquorice, and tobacco giving way to earthy notes that lure you in. One sip and you are a believer. The tannins/acid are seamlessly interwoven throughout the fruit and excite and entice even more. Don’t hold back, it’s too good. Drinking now and until 2035, serve with your favourite roasted red meats.
