Chianti Classico DOCG 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The name “Isole e Olena” was conceived in the 1950’s when two adjoining estates, “Isole” and “Olena” were purchased by the De Marchi family and were combined to form one. The history of both estates dates back many hundreds of years, and the earliest documentation of the village of Olena as far back as the 12th Century. At the beginning of the 1950’s, the De Marchi family began gradually phasing out the sharecropping system. New specialized vineyards were planted and the cellars were expanded. Today the Isole e Olena estate is run by Paolo De Marchi, his wife Marta and his children. Paolo comes from a family with three generations of winemaking experience in the northern part of Piemonte. He has recently started working his grandfather’s estate near Gattinara, Villa Sperino, where Lessona is produced. His first vintage was released in 2006. This is another deeply coloured, powerful yet elegant wine from Paolo De Marchi. Vibrant, dark red fruit intermingles on the nose with lots of toasty/ vanilla oak and mineral tones. On the palate it is full bodied with soft, round tannins and plenty of ripe fruit.

Moderately saturated red. Complex aromas of red fruits, gunflint, white pepper and violet. Then sweet, supple and silky in the mouth, with rather suave red fruit, tobacco and sweet spice flavors. The firm finish features building chewy tannins, sneak... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 750ml

The 2007 Cepparello (Sangiovese) makes a case for itself as one of the finest wines ever made at Isole e Olena. It is an open, sublime Cepparello endowed with tons of clarity and definition. The ripe red fruit floats on a core of refined, silky tann... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Isole e Olena Cepparello 750ml
