The Essence of Isole e Olena

Discover the rich history and significance of Isole e Olena, a renowned winery nestled within the breathtaking Chianti Classico territory of Tuscany.

The Uniqueness of Sangiovese

At the heart of Isole e Olena's winemaking philosophy lies the Sangiovese grape, the embodiment of the distinctive characteristics found in the land of the Black Rooster. In Chianti Classico wine, Sangiovese grapes dominate, comprising a minimum of 80% of the blend. However, up to 20% of other red grape varieties can also be added.

The Evolution of Chianti Classico

Throughout the years, Isole e Olena has dedicated itself to extensive research in the field, underscoring the growing importance of Sangiovese in Chianti Classico wine and the inclusion of red grape varieties. Since 1996, the production of DOC wines using pure Sangiovese grapes has been possible, while in 2006, Chianti Classico started being exclusively produced with red grape varieties.

A Tapestry of Grape Varieties

The blending of Isole e Olena wines draws upon a wide spectrum of grape varieties. These include native Tuscan varieties such as Canaiolo Nero, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Fogliatonda, Malvasia Nera, Mammolo, and Pugnitello, as well as renowned international varieties like Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. All selected grapes must be recorded in the national register of vine varieties of MIPAAF authorized by the Region of Tuscany.

The Black Rooster Territory

From the vineyard to bottle, every step of producing a wine carrying the Black Rooster trademark must occur within the borders of the Chianti Classico territory. This enchanting region stretches between the cities of Florence and Siena, nestled in the heart of Tuscany, where the land and climate converge to create wines of exceptional quality.

A Symbol of Quality

Each bottle of Isole e Olena's Chianti Classico proudly bears the Black Rooster trademark, serving as a symbol of the wine's superior craftsmanship and adherence to the strict regulations of the region.
