About this winery

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. They are located at an altitude of 400 m above sea level and receives an average of 900mm of rainfall annually. The soil is a mixture of limestone, clay slates and sandstone, which allows sufficient drainage in times of heavy rains and the retention of moisture in times of drought.

James Suckling, October 2020

A very pretty 2017 Chianti Classico with a beautiful core of ripe fruit and layers of round, lightly chewy tannins. Dark cherries, walnuts and chocolate. Drink or hold.
