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. More recently it was purchased by Argentinian born, entrepreneur, Alejandro Bulgheroni in 2012. As well as Chianti Classico, Alejandro went on to buy plots of vineyard land in neighbouring territories Montalcino and Bolgheri also. With these three world renowned sub regions, united as one project, Dievole offer a unique range of terroir-driven and stylistically distinctive wines under the labels of; Dievole, Le Due Arbie, Podere Brizio and Tenuta Meraviglia.
Under this new management, Dievole has gone through a vast renovation in terms of philosophy and ultimately their viticulture and vinification techniques. The hard working and enthusiastic new team managing Dievole consist of talented, young winemaker Giovanni Alberio, passionate agronomist, Lorenzo Bernini and well renowned, Tuscan born, consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini. 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. Dievole now has the potential to be up there with Tuscany’s greatest estates and we are thrilled to join them on their journey to achieve this!
