In recent years Paolo de Marchi has worked hard to create and refine the conditions for the production of top-quality wines. For the Piedmontese owner of the Isole e Olena winery, the place where quality is decided is the vineyard. The trained oenologist, who settled in 1976 in the west of Chianti Classico near the hamlets of Isole and Olena in the then still unprofitable parental estate, studied among other things at the Research Institute for Horticulture and Viticulture in Geisenheim and at the famous Research Institute in Montpellier. To this day, Paolo has uncompromisingly adhered to the peculiarities of Tuscan wine culture in order to prevent the plants from becoming more and more similar in taste worldwide.
