    Bright ruby with some orange reflexes. Meaty, savoury nose. Sweet fruit attack, immediately followed by refreshing acidity. Persistent, crunchy tannins in a long, succulent fruit finish. Impressive. (WS)

    The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a divine dessert wine that boasts the best of this labor-intensive winemaking tradition. Vintners who make Vin Santo will always tell you that they do so for passion. The quantities are so small and the commercial margins so thin, pure passion is the only reason someone would embark on this kind of project. Happily for us wine lovers, people like Paolo De Marchi have that passion. His Vin Santo is one of the best available today. The wine is impeccable and beautiful inside and out. Caramel, maple syrup, roasted pine nut and dried apricot emerge from the bouquet. I find this wine to be simply irresistible for those with a sweet tooth and those without.

    Gorgeous, deep ruby in color with an expressive nose of black cherry, eucalyptus, and hyacinth. Absolutely marvelous on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, watermelon candy, Asian spice, lip smacking acidity, and ripe tannins. Astounding quality for the price.

The estate is run by Paolo de Marchi, who has been turning out significant and stunning wines for years. The "Cepparello" is dense and intense, but has a subtle finesse that frames lovely, dense, black fruit purity. In addition to its classic Sangiovese-based wines, Isole e Olena also produces Vin Santo, "L'Eremo" Syrah, as well as several new world varieties under the Collezione de Marchi label.
