2020 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 375mL Italy – The rolling hills of Tuscany, topped with medieval villas, vineyards and olive groves, are instantly recognisable to wine-lovers across the world. It is a region renowned for the quality of its wines and many of the most famous wine estates. Sangiovese is the king of red grapes here, but many other indigenous and international grape varieties are grown amongst the hills, creating a rich tapestry of characterful wines that sing of their Italian origins.

In the 1950s, the father of current winemaker Paolo de Marchi purchased the adjoining hamlets of Isole and Olena and their estates in the Tuscan commune of Barberino Val d’Elsa. Paolo entered the business in 1976 and the quality of the estates wines improved rapidly after decades of sharecropping. Di Marchi is one of the regions kings of the Sangiovese grape, at a time when Chianti was a blended wine it was he that stepped out to produce wines that were 100% Sangiovese. The wine, the true embodiment of the word Super Tuscan is the Cepparello IGT which has gone on to become an iconic wine and a benchmark for the Chianti region. The estate also produces stunning Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chianti Classico.

A blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Syrah that was matured for around 12 months in large oak barrels. Expect notes of currants and cherries, dried herbs and spicy tobacco. A medium bodied wine which is an exceptional expression of Chianti Classico. Fresh acidity, soft tannins and a long, smooth finish round of a delicious little wine. Enjoy now and over the next 5+ years.
