Dievole Chianti Classico Novecento Riserva
Dievole Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento DOCG 2014 [75cl] Italy

Novecento will convince anyone of Chianti's brilliance. First class drinking & one of our favourite wines.

Deep ruby with fruity aromas of cherry, blackcurrant and black cherry. The palate is dry, intense and structured, lightly spicy with tobacco, chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes.

Perfect with meat dishes and ripe cheese. For best results, decant two hours before serving.

Novecento Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% other red grapes, including Colorino, which come from the vineyards of Sessina, Massoni and Colombaio in Tuscany. The grapes were harvested by hand and once fermentation was complete, the wine was aged in the finest American and French oak barriques before bottling and cellaring.

Dievole is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, not far from the historic city of Siena. The 411 hectare estate, 86 hectares of which are under vine, rests among woods, olive groves and crop-filled fields. Traditional classic grape varieties are grown, along with contempory classics and new arrivals. The first grape was harvested on the estate over 900 years ago, and today Dievole, with probably the most privileged location in Chianti Classico, is one of the most respected institutions in Italian winemaking.
