The Isole e Olena estate, is located in Tuscany, on the western slope of the Chianti Classico hills halfway between Florence and Siena. The name ‘Isole e Olena’ came about in the 1950s when two adjoining estates, ‘Isole’ and ‘Olena’, were purchased by the De Marchi family and combined to form one. Since 1976 Paolo de Marchi has been at the helm of the estate where he has radically increased the quality of the wines produced so much so that he is now referred to as Mr Sangiovese.
