You could say She is so wise, if you mean she has a lot of life experience, (wisdom), or learning.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/wise

If you mean she has a lot of learning and education, you should say she is so knowledgeable. OR
She has so MUCH knowledge (Knowledge is not countable, so you can't have "many" knowledge.

Olá Tiago,

Para complementar:

She´s so wise.(correto)
He´s so wise.(correto)

She has so much wisdom.
He has so much wisdom.

*Como disse a Mary,"much" é mais apropriado neste caso.

Boa sorte!
wise = sábio
wisdom - sabedoria
Olá! Apesar de já ter sido respondida sua pergunta, só quero postar um texto que eu acho muito interessante sobre expressoes com a palavra wise:

[]s!
But wise has more than one meaning, for instance.

Don't be a wise ass! (Não bangue o engraçadinho)

And wise guy
The teacher was delighted that the worst wise guy in the class was moving out of town.

and wiseguy or wise guy can be a member of the Mafia (Not a Sicilian)
I would just let sleeping dogs lie (deixar quieto) if I were you, he's a wise guy, he works for Don Corleone.
