A new perspective of Dievole’s history
Whether tasting our Chianti Classico 2013 is your first experience with Dievole or you are a long-term lover of the brand, one thing is certain: Dievole has been producing wine since 1090 and the company has been continuously evolving in the past few years. A look at past labels tells a story of change, but also consistency.
In 1985, an ornate, heraldic label in black and white graced our Chianti Classico. The name refers to the closest vineyard to the hamlet “Colombaio”, a heritage from the noble Family of Malavolti from Siena, former owners of Dievole property for several centuries.
The later 80s and 90s brought in a new era – the Dievole logo and a graphic label that put emphasis on the wine itself. The gold background – which, over the years has been solid, striped or mottled – represents the land itself, the terroir of this special Chianti Classico wine.
At times, the label reads “Villa Dievole” rather than just “Dievole”, putting an emphasis on the hospitality of this place, something it has always offered.
2013 marks a new era for Dievole, a Renaissance of the winery in which these themes all come together: heritage and land, hospitality and people. The Chianti Classico 2013 is the first Dievole wine to fully communicate the uniqueness of this terroir and Dievole’s respect for it. The label reflects the wine within, and the new production philosophy: elegant, fresh and complex with beautiful aromas that reflect our ancient territory.
It is the Most Classic of Chianti Classico.
