Among the gems in the Argentine billionaire Alejandro Bulgheroni's wine portfolio is the venerable Tuscan estate Dievole. With wine properties in Uruguay, Argentina, California, Bordeaux, and Australia, Bulgheroni purchased Dievole eight years ago. Immediately, vineyard management became the focus at Dievole, quickly moving the estate to traditional vineyard management, sustainability and biodynamics, transforming this thousand year old estate with its enviable terroir back to its historic potential. Under the tutelage of consultant Alberto Antonini, Dievole's reemergence came with the 2013 vintage of Novecento. The Novecento bottling celebrates 900 years of history at Dievole. The 2015 is indeed "authentically Tuscan" and a tribute to the transformative magic of Bulgheroni's team.

Showing broad shoulders and powerful intensity, the 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Novecento is an elegant and authentic wine that would pair with grilled steak or pasta topped with wild boar sauce. This wine is authentically Tuscan down to its inner core. The blend is 95% Sangiovese with 3% Canaiolo and 2% Colorino. It offers characteristic flavors of wild cherry, rose hip, moist garden herb and chewing tobacco. You also get that snappy freshness of the grapes from a cool and classic vintage such as this. Bottle production is 30,000 units strong. I liked this Riserva a bit more than Dievole's Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from the same vintage.

Dense and brooding, this red gathers sweet cherry and berry fruit midpalate, gaining support from bitter almond and tobacco notes. Beefy and long on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,500 cases made.

A rich and round-textured red with a dark-chocolate, coffee and walnut character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.
