From the importer: "In the 1970’s, Paolo De Marchi came to the Isole e Olena estate, which his family had previously purchased in the Chianti Classico region of Italy. Since this time, Paolo has extensively replanted the approximately 50 hectares (125 acres) of vineyards, based on his experimentation regarding planting density, soil composition, and clonal selection. A key aspect of Paolo’s success is his desire to incorporate scientific research with the traditions of the region. This allows him to produce high quality grapes and wines that express the true character of Tuscany. Today, Paolo De Marchi is known worldwide for his Chianti Classico wines and his iconic Cepparello, made from 100% Sangiovese. He also produces exceptional wines from his plantings of “international” varieties." The 2016 Chianti Classico is polished and proudly Tuscan - foraged red berries and fresh cherries combine with baking spices, dark-roast coffee, and a touch of vanilla.
