Isole e Olena is a 125-acre estate in Val d’Elsa, Tuscany. The estate was formed in the 1950s when two adjoining estates, the Isole and the Olena, were purchased by the de Marchi family. Located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the estate today is run by Paolo de Marchi and his family. Known for their Chiantis, the estate also produces highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and a Vin Santo. Still, it is the Sangiovese-based wines that are the most famous. The Cepparello is a 100% Sangiovese that Robert M. Parker Jr. calls “superb, one of Tuscany’s best high-end 100% Sangiovese bottlings.” About 200,000 bottles in total are produced annually.
