2010 Isole e Olena Chardonnay Collezione De Marchi

Merchant Reviews
Like many of their contemporaries, the De Marchi family, in the early days of Isole e Elena's existence, came to believe that Tuscany's wine future lay in the international varieties and international styles gaining so much notoriety in California. Consequently, they planted 5 hectares of premium clones from the Northern Rhône, Bordeaux, and Burgundy on the hills facing southwest above frazione Isole. Chardonnay made with finesse and elegance, this wine illustrates Paolo's delicate, masterful touch. Neither does it emulate the high-acid, cooler-weather wines of Burgundy, nor the opulent and juicey wines of the southern hemisphere, this is eminently Tuscan Chardonnay of sweet lemon-zest aromas and a lush palate of fine, dry, tree fruit. Pairs perfectly with Pollo Arrosto allo Toscano.
