Dievole Petrignano Chianti Classico 2019 was born from the intention of enhancing the distinctive features of a vineyard particularly suited to Sangiovese. Petrignano is an area that has soils rich in stones and minerals, where limestone rocks emerge, typical of the geological formation of Monte Morello. Petrignano is a Chianti Classico with a fruity scent of marked notes of ripe fruit, cherry and blackberry. On the palate the Petrignano di Dievole is juicy, full, rich, confirms the notes of blackberry and ripe fruit, a warm and velvety finish with fine and smooth tannins
Dievole is a corner of Tuscany between Siena and Florence, in the center of the Chianti Classico which has always been considered a small paradise.
Here the dialogue between nature and man has never been interrupted and the name can explain the reason: “Dievole” means “God wills”.
Dievole’s name officially appears for the first time in the 11th century and precisely on May 10, 1090. During that time the Icelandic Leif Erikson discovers North America, the Chinese discover gunpowder, the first university in the world was founded in Bologna, Rome is invaded by the Normans and Pope Urban II conquers Jerusalem. On that day, as stated in the contract drawn up by the notary Bellundo, two capons, three purebred loaves and six Lucchese deniers of good silver were paid for the annual contract for a vineyard in a divine valley, which was Dievole.
In 2012 Dievole began a harmonious and gradual renewal with the aim of enhancing the deepest identity of this area. Yesterday’s dreams become tomorrow’s goals, ancient certainties are confronted with new ideas. It is an evolution, based on respect, which started from listening to the land and which has only one advantage: quality. Quality at Dievole begins first of all with excellent agricultural resources such as a land particularly suited to viticulture, human experience and the constant effort for innovation.
These are the tools with which the Dievole team looks to the future with the aim of protecting the atmosphere of this magical place and making it known to the world. There are three expressions of Dievole: its vineyards that draw the waves on the hills and that give life to fresh and intense Sangiovese-based wines, the olive trees that dot the landscape with their timeless charm and the warm welcome of the historic Villa – Villa Dievole – an elegant country resort where you can experience unforgettable moments.
