  1. Isole e Olena - Chardonnay

    As Paolo De Marchi started using less and less white grapes in the Chianti Classico blend, he decided to use the best Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes to increase the production for Vin Santo and to make a still white table wine from a blend of the remaining grapes. After a few attempts, he realised that the best wine was one produced from 100% Chardonnay, so grafted Chardonnay onto existing vines on the estate. 1987 was the first vintage for the ‘Collezione De Marchi Chardonnay’. The Chardonnay is made in a more Burgundian style than most in Italy. It remains on the lees in 1/3 new oak barrels 10 months (up to 12 months depending on the vintage). During the first six months the wines is stirred occasionally, in the Burgundian style. Fresh and aromatic, with cream, ripe pineapple and lime aromas that follow through to a full body, with lively honey, ripe apple and toasty oak character. Long and rich with intense flavours.
