Wine of the month. Chianti Classico Novecento Riserva ’14 by Dievole

Dievole is located in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, a few kilometers from Siena. More than 150 of its 600 hectares are devoted to vineyard, making it one of the most significant players in the Chianti Classico denomination.

Winery

A long cypress-lined road leads to the village and villa, the production centers, and to a wonderfully comfortable inn. In every direction lies a view of Tuscan woods, olive groves, vineyards and farmhouses. This beautiful property and its imaginative production choices are in the hands of Italo-Argentinian entrepreneur, Alejandro Bulgheroni. His great love for his land and its products led to a project focused on Important principles – improvement of his property, production that would succeed on international markets, and attention to environmental impact. The vineyards are meticulously managed and in the winemaking facilities, fermentation is exclusively in cement vats. Aging takes place in large wood casks.

Tasting notes

Despite a very difficult vintage year, Chianti Classico Novecento Riserva ’14 offers an absolutely clean aromatic profile, with intriguing hints of flint and sensations of iron alongside abundant, fragrant fruitiness. A juicy palate develops with continuity and reveals incisive, crisp tannin.

Ex-cellar price: 26,00 euros
