Isole e Olena is a 50 hectare estate consisting of the Isole and Olena farms which were bought by the De Marchi family in 1950. The estate has been run by Paolo De Marchi since 1976 and makes a range of red and white wines. It is noted for its sangiovese wines
Easy to see why Paolo de Marchi is one of the world's pre-eminent artisan producers. This is one of those wines which easily transcend their appellation council's stipulations. Gorgeous amarena cherry liqueur, tobacco, spice and violet hints. Sensational nose, with very bright acidity, along with soft and refined tannins. The quality/price factor is dramatically tilted in favor of wine lovers on this one. Loved it!
