Winemaker Notes

That certain moment of uncertainty.
When ripeness is not all, phenolic maturity must be waited for. It implies the willingness to risk failure - knowing that the greatest risk might be not to leave the grapes on the vine. Even more than this it implies absolute commitment in the vineyard. And site and weather must be in favour. The "poggetti" only - Dievole's most ventilated summits - save for last the grapes that are strongest-skinned, in wholesome airy clusters. They dry and concentrate on the vine. Hazard and opportunity. In the best of luck fermentation is very slow. The extraction, promoted by its own "mosto-fiore concentrato" commands about forty days. Novecento is a Riserva Chianti Classico. Novecento's first vintage is the 1990 - "novecento" years after 1090, Dievole's birthyear.

Dievole. The enchanted valley.
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.

Aspiring to perfection is second nature to us
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.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
