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 are territorially reflective and show great varietal purity.
