Drink now through to 2027. Serve chilled.

Isole e Olena is a family-owned winery which has been in the attentive hands of the De Marchi clan since the 1950s. The property is actually formed of two estates, Isole and Olena, in the heart of Chianti Classico which were purchased by the family and worked together as a single winery. Today the leading light of the winery is fourth generation winemaker Paolo De Marchi who cut his teeth working vintages in California and France before heading home to put what he had seen and learned into practice.

Known as “Mr Sangiovese” in Italy, Paolo De Marchi has put his stamp on the industry since taking over Isole e Olena at the tender age of 25. He was amongst the early Super Tuscan pioneers with his 100% Sangiovese wines and focus on elegance and finesse which is perfectly demonstrated by this graceful Chardonnay.

Reminiscent of fine white Burgundy, this stunning wine opens with toasted almond and buttery notes which evolve into ripe tropical fruit, brioche and a clean minerality on the palate. The influence of oak is very well-balanced, giving a rich creamy texture and generous nutty flavours that linger long on the tongue. Consider pairing this elegant Chardonnay with sole meunière, seared scallops or even chicken in a creamy sauce to show it off at its best.
