Exotic, luxurious and lush; super ripe and intense, but cuddly and lush, with a splendid texture. Aromas of smoked meats, cinnamon and coffee are more savory than sweet. Tastes generous, with black fruit floating on ripe tannins. Finishes very long.
There’s a very attractive fullness and roundness to this wine that wins over your senses the moment you lift the glass to your nose. The wine delivers aromas of black cherry, Asian spice, root beer, vanilla and sweet maple syrup that are distinct and pristine. It’s modern and velvety in the mouth with tight structure and great length.
Thick concentration and intense notes of blackberry, currants, chocolate fudge and spice describe the nose of this rich and velvety wine. What brings the wine ultimately together is its successful balance of acidity and vibrant fruit.
With an international team and winemaker, Dievole presents modern, succulent and irresistible Chianti Classicos with concentration, coffee, nutmeg, leather, cherry under spirits, chocolate and toasted almond. You will love this big, bold style: Chewy in the mouth and soft as silky on the taste buds.
Dievole was a beacon of quality and innovation in Chianti Classico but disappeared from the scene in the past few years. It’s back now with its celebrated Novecento Riserva. The wine shows an elegant, more traditional style compared to past vintages, with a lighter mouthfeel, more acidity and bright aromas of white cherry and cassis.
A blockbuster red from a beautiful Chianti Classico estate that drinks like a slab of succulent charred steak. Billboard-sized aromas of cherry and espresso bean still manage to be overwhelmed by notes of burnt wood. If you can get past the woodshop tones, the mouthful is divinely velvety and supple with soft tannins and firm structure. Drink now.
A little bit flat on the bouquet, with prune, graham cracker and tobacco aromas. Flavors of plum and black cherry are fine, but there’s more acid and tannin than flesh. Solid but not spectacular; there’s a bit too much displaced tannin to rate at the next level up.
