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. In 2012, it was purchased by Argentinian entrepreneur Alejandro Bulgheroni. As well as Chianti Classico, Alejandro went on to buy plots of vineyard land in neighbouring territories Montalcino and Bolgheri. He united these three world renowned sub regions under a single project - Dievole. The project offers 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 consists of talented, young winemaker Giovanni Alberio, passionate agronomist, Lorenzo Bernini, and well-known, Tuscan born, consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini. Among many improvements implemented, Dievole no longer use herbicides and pesticides (all vineyards are currently in Organic conversion), shifted from cultured yeast to wild yeast, and replaced all international varietals with exclusively indigenous varieties. This renovation has allowed Dievole to rediscover its authenticity and individuality. It has also 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!

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(Chianti Classico 2014) "Tasting it is breathtaking. There is depth to the rich cherry and red berry fruit, with spices and balsam notes appearing.  It feels fresh and alive, with a beautiful balance of fruit, tannins and acidity. The finale has a lovely sour cherry and bitters edge that keeps you coming back for more.  My hallmarks of fine wine are personified here; elegance, intensity and purity." Paul Howard, The Organic Wine Journal (May 2016)


(Podere Brizio, Brunello di Montalcino 2013) "Bright red. Sweet spice, ripe red cherry, licorice and flowers on the nose and in the mouth. Smooth and bright, and though not exactly the last word in concentration or complexity, this is downright irresistible in its juicy, fruity appeal" 92 points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media (April 2018)


(Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento 2014) "Tre Bicchieri" prize, Guida Vini d'Italia 2018, Gambero Rosso
