    • "Novecento" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      “Novecento” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      Ruby red with violet reflexes in the glass, the lively aromatic complex shows above all berries, before the compact, beautifully balanced and fleshy taste reveals its juicy tannin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, brightly shining ruby. Shows in the nose fine nuances of ripe cherries, minimal rum pot, raspberry jam, delicate wood spice, flattering. On the palate fresh, juicy with crisp tannin, stretches a redberry body, high drinking flow, pithy tannin." Falstaff

      "Packed with bright, persistent cherry and rhubarb fruit; lively, youthful and fresh with a lovely long, elegant finish." Decanter

      "A silky, refined red with crushed-berry, cherry and mineral character. Racy and precise with a lovely combination of fine tannins and bright acidity. Drink now and enjoy." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento takes the intensity and the level of sophistication up an important step if you have just tasted the entry-level Chianti Classico immediately before this wine (as I did). This wine is brooding and multifaceted with layers of dark fruit, spice, tar and smoke. There is a very deep quality here too that reminds me of earth or crushed black rocks. This beautiful vintage offers great texture that is velvety and rich without ever feeling heavy or slow. The finish is very long and crisp. It would be great with braised meats." Robert Parker

    • "Vigna di Sessina" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

      “Vigna di Sessina” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

      The second vintage of Dievoles Gran Selezione presents itself dark, deep and with wonderfully strong cherry and blackberry notes. Very defined and precise on the palate with an archetypal interpretation of the grape variety. Here everything is in the right place, the balance and clarity impresses with every sip. In the finish, it has a terrificlength and depth. This is Sangiovese in its purest form with infinite energy and expression. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dievole's 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna di Sessina (100% Sangiovese) is similar to the Riserva made in the same vintage, only this wine offers more dark and savory definition. It's a small margin of difference, but it is perceptible, thus adding even more fuel to the overall intensity, power and depth of this wine. The 2016 vintage is beautiful, and one of its best qualities is that every minor detail of the fruit, vineyard management and winemaking comes into enhanced focus and sharpness. It's imperative not to get anything wrong, and this wine gets it all right. This second edition of a Gran Selezione from Dievole is more profound and complete compared to last year's release." SUPERIORE.DE

      "Elegant ruby with a tendency to garnet red. In the nose of blackberry jelly, elderflower and cassis, delicate spicy nuances. Shows itself on the palate with tightly woven tannin, juicy, clear fruit, powerful, also slightly salty, put away and enjoy fully in a few years." Falstaff

      "Bright black cherry, black currant, violet and wild herb aromas and flavors are matched to a supple texture in this fluid red. Structured, yet the tannins are well-mannered, suggesting that this should be approachable soon. Best from 2021 through 2033." Wine Spectator

    About the winemakers
    Dievole
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Dievole

    Legends are always entwined around great old wineries in Italy. This also applies to the Dievole winery, which was founded in 1090 ("Dio vuole - God Wills“). Allegedly two friends of Abbate Rolando, the head of the monastery, leased the land for the cultivation of grapes and paid three loaves of bread, one capon and six silver coins per year.

    The Azienda Agricola Dievole, situated twelve kilometres northeast of Siena, near Castelnuovo Berardenga in the picturesque village of Vagliagli at up to 450 metres above sea level in the hills of the Chianti Classico region, has been regularly awarded prizes for its excellent wines by international experts for many years. Since 2013, the Dievole estate has belonged to billionaire Alejandro Pedro Bulgheroni, who already owns several estates in Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, Bordeaux and California. In Italy he is also involved in Montalcino and the Maremma.

    The well-known Chianti Classico vineyard has been given a new management and is being systematically converted to organic cultivation. The vintage 2017 will be the first certified organic vintage. Alberto Antonini was engaged for the wine production. The renowned oenologist and wine consultant has already worked for several well-known wineries, in Italy for Antinori and Frescobaldi as well as for wineries in the USA and South America. This also applies to Bulgheronis Bodeka Garzón in Uruguay.

    The total area of over 500 hectares of land includes 16 vineyards, each of which is managed by its own team. By 2020, 150 hectares of wine should be in production. The rest are woods and 10% olive groves. In recent years the cellar technology has also been renewed. New, conical cement tanks are used as fermentation tanks, which also found their way back into Bordeaux in famous chateaux such as Cheval Blanc. Large wooden barrels are mainly used for the finishing.

    Today the wine production at Dievole ranges from white and red IGT wines to Chianti Classico DOCG and Riserva to products such as Vin Santo, Grappa and olive oil. Already in the 1980s the main building, a Renaissance villa, had been renovated and transformed into a beautiful hotel and wine resort. In the meantime, the other former palazzi and farmhouses have also been renovated for overnight stays and events. SUPERIORE.DE
