Isole e Olena Chianti Classico 2020


Paolo De Marchi has more than earned his reputation as one of Tuscany’s finest winemakers. Wine Spectator refers to him as the “Chianti legend”.  Antonio Galloni famously remarked, “Make no mistake about it, these are some of the most exceptional wines being made anywhere in the world.” That is true and Paolo’s Chianti Classico’s are always some of the best bangs for your buck out there.

The 2020 Sangiovese dominant blend earned double 93-point scores from both Decanter and James Suckling and usually lands a 92+ score each year from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. But more important than scores, the incredible burst of flavor and aromas that Paolo gets out of his Sangiovese this year is absurd.  Made in stainless steal, this boasts fresh notes of Bing Cherry, plum and warm apple pie. It’s got so much energy. Smooth and silky and just a pleasure to drink with or without food.

93 Points, Decanter
One of Chianti Classico’s most illustrious properties, Isole e Olena was established in 1956. After more than 45 years at the helm, Paolo de Marchi sold the estate last year to luxury company EPI, which also acquired Biondi Santi in 2016. This 2020 takes some time to reveal its tempting fragrance. Wafting flint, cardamom and pepper make way for early spring blossoms and red berries. It has a graceful flow along with a sumptuousness and succulence of raspberry and red plum. Fine powdery tannins frame it. A juicy follow up to the excellent 2019.

93 Points, James Suckling
Lots of ripe fruit flavors with orange peel and stony minerality. Medium- to full-bodied with an array of round, velvety tannins. Even and broad with a lingering finish. Very attractive.
