More information about 2020 Dievole Chianti Classico
Since the 2013 vintage, the world famous Alberto Antonini is responsible for the wines at Dievole. He has produced this Chianti Classico with a great sense of tradition. The fully ripe grapes were harvested in early October. Only yeasts from their own vineyard were used for fermentation (spontaneous fermentation). Aging took place for 14 months in large wooden barrels made of noble Allier oak.
The wine shows a strong ruby red in the glass. Intense aromas of violets and ripe red fruits flow from the glass. On the palate, it shows finesse through a distinct mineral note, well-integrated fine-grained tannins and an intense cherry aroma. The finish is smooth and persistent. A Chianti Classico as it is in the book.
Grape varieties by proportion: 90% Sangiovese, 6% Canaiolo, 4% Colorino.
