The island of Elba is the largest in the Tuscan archipelago and the
Italy's third largest after Sicily and Sardinia. La Chiusa traces its
origins to the late 16th Century, when the cellars and the old hamlet were
built, and Napoleon Bonaparte stayed at the estate on two occasions. Overlooking
the gulf of Portoferraio, La Chiusa takes its name from the walls which enclose
its twenty hectares of land, mostly vineyards and olive groves. Father & son
team Fabio and Enrico Coser of Ronco dei Tassi in Friuli (also a Vino Italiano
selection) oversee the winemaking.
