Dievole Chianti Classico 2018 is the proud standard-bearer of the company. Faithful to the old Chianti recipe, blends with non-native grapes (merlot, cabernet …) are not accepted here, certain that the only way to express the true Chianti terroir is to rely on the varieties that have lived here for centuries.
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.
