Dievole Chianti Classico DOCG Jeroboam 2016
Dievole Chianti Classico DOCG is the flagship wine of the company which has the role of first ambassador of the territory. It is Dievole's wine that fully conveys the uniqueness of this territory and Dievole's respect for it. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts in 80 HL truncated cone oak barrels for 12-13 days at controlled temperature (26-28 ° C). Natural malolactic fermentation in the same vats. The aging takes place in large barrels for a period of about 14 months. The 40 Hl barrels are made of unroasted oak wood, coming from the noble French forests of Allier. Bottle aging takes place for a minimum period of 3 months. A lively ruby red that has exceptional floral tones with ripe fruits and floral notes of violet on the nose. It has an excellent minerality and acidity, well-integrated and harmonised with a young but already ripe tannin.
"This wine is brooding and multifaceted with layers of dark fruit, spice, tar, and smoke. There is a very deep quality here too that reminds me of earth or crushed black rocks. This beautiful vintage offers great texture that is velvety and rich without ever feeling heavy or slow. The finish is very long and crisp. It would be great with braised meats." ROBERT PARKER
"Intense, brightly shining ruby. Shows in the nose fine nuances of ripe cherries, minimal rum pot, raspberry jam, delicate wood spice, flattering. On the palate fresh, juicy with crisp tannin, stretches a redberry body, high drinking flow, pithy tannin." FALSTAFF
