Chianti is a myth of Italian Winemaking from Tuscany! 2016 was the 300th Anniversary of the most famous Italian Wine in the World, from the ancient recipe by Barone Bettino Ricasoli (1716).
The vinification initiates with a spontaneous fermentation in 75 Hl cement tanks after contact with indigenous yeast, this occurs for 14-15 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation in untoasted 41 Hl French oak casks where it is aged for a further 17 month period. A further 6 months refinement in bottle is carried out before release.

The Winery: Dievole
The Dievole estate has a long-standing history in Tuscany, dating back as far as 1090, a date which they proudly bare upon their logo. Among many improvements implemented, Dievole no longer use herbicides and pesticides (all vineyards are currently in Organic conversion), they swapped the use of cultured yeasts for wild, and they replaced all international varietals with exclusively indigenous varieties. This renovation has been paramount in helping Dievole rediscover its authenticity and individuality and has resulted in an elegant range which is territorially reflective and shows great varietal purity.
