RATINGS: 93pts Robert Parker

At Dievole, good wine is the right answer to the right question, whether for vineyard or wine cellar. A good wine is the perfect union of man and nature. Dievole is an enchanted valley and we are committed to finding the right people. All evaluations, from selecting mother vine stock and clones to vintage planning and innovation in vineyards and wine cellar, are determined by one single objective: uplifting standards in the hope of creating a good wine through character and quality.

Dievole viticulture dates back to the 11th century. The first step taken to cultivate this genetic legacy was to revisit the past found in the historical memory of the farming families. New masters of wine-growing were brought in to counter environmental uniformity and monotony. Its particolar type of terroir includes such ancient classics as Barsaglina, Aleatico, Foglia Tonda, Ciliegiolo, Prugnolo Gentile, Mammolo and Saragiolo. It also covers contemporary classics such as Canaiolo a Raspo Rosso, Malvasia Nera, Syrah, Petit Verdot and the various Sangiovese clones.

TASTING NOTES: Robert Parker- This wine will be released in April 2016. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento was recently bottled when I tasted it. Despite this vulnerable time in its evolution, the wine shows a high tenor of focus, vitality, energy and power. This momentum appears solely driven by the quality of the 2013 fruit and the hands-off wine philosophy that is being implemented under the new Dievole ownership. No enological products are used to speed up the fermentation process and wood vessels are being replaced by cement vats with inside cooling systems. Great attention is paid to vineyard management and harvest dates for optimal ripening. The wine needs to flesh out further, but it promises a very satisfying performance once it does.
