ODERE POGGIO SCALETTE became an autonomous wine-producing estate in 1991 when Vittorio Fiore and his wife Adriana Assjè di Marcorà acquired several plots of land and a rural building on the hill of Ruffoli, in the township of Greve in Chianti, in the very heart of the Chianti Classico appellation. The property came from the division of an heritage and the sale of proprety consisting of old stone farmhouses, vineyard land, olive groves, pasture land, and woods which had been abandoned years previously after the death of the former owner. The first part of the estate was thus constituted and was enlarged shortly afterwards in 1996 with the addition of an adjacent property endowed with functional cellars and ample working spaces creating, with this acquisition, a 40 hectare (100 acre) property sub-divided as follows:
vineyards ha 15,00
olive groves ha 10,00
grain fields ha 2,00
woods ha 5,00
buildings and uncultivated area ha 8,00
The estate is directly run by wife Adriana Assjè di Marcorà and son Jurij Fiore (a graduate of the School of Viticulture and Oenology of Beaune in Burgundy) with the overall supervision of Vittorio Fiore. The marketing of the wines, instead, has been assigned to son Roberto for the Italian domestic market and to son Alessandro for export markets.
