Isole e Olena
Chianti - Tuscany - Italy
ISOLE e OLENA is located in Tuscany, on the western slope of the Chianti Classico hills halfway between Florence and Siena. Its name was conceived in 1956 when two adjoining estates, “ISOLE” and “OLENA” were purchased by the De Marchi family and were combined into one, nevertheless the history of both estates dates back many hundreds of years, and the earliest documentation of the village of Olena dates far back as the 12th century. In 1976, Paolo De Marchi got fully involved in the family estate dedicating endless effort in reshaping its viticulture and focusing on his own ideas of quality: to produce the best possible Sangiovese that balances elegance, finesse and power to yield wines that are a unique expression of the site. Cepparello is the world acclaimed result of his work. All the wines, including CHIANTI CLASSICO and CEPPARELLO, are estate wines produced only from the grapes grown on the estate’s 56 hectares of vineyards.
