2016 CHIANTI CLASSICO, Isole e Olena. Tuscany
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Isole e Olena (two tiny ancient villages) is situated in the west of the Chianti Classico area, not far from Castellina, about half way between Florence and Siena.
Grape Variety: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo, 5% Syrah; matured for a year in oak barrels of different sizes
Producer: Paolo de Marchi has run the estate since 1976, forging an international reputation in that time. He has 45 hectares of vines. As well as this quintessential Chianti Classico, he makes fine Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet, and finally Cepparello, his flagship wine, the ultimate expression of the estate.
Old Bridge Rating: Rich and savoury but not powerful - a classic, serious expression of Sangiovese.
