2011 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico

Merchant Reviews
At the heart of Paolo de Marchi's wine-making philosophy is his sense of what is typically Tuscan. Amid the over-extracted, cabernet-influenced wines produced in Tuscany today, Paolo's elegant renditions of Chianti quietly exalt the beauty of Sangiovese. Supple, well balanced, and perfumed in every vintage, they have become an illustration for younger producers of what pristine agriculture, high-density vineyards and meticulous fermentation can achieve. Fennel, and porcini-infused earth form the backdrop for fine, black cherry fruit, while silky tannins and mouth-watering fruit acids allow Paolo's wines to linger gracefully on the palate. Roasted sausage and Sugo di Coniglio are natural accompaniments.
