Dievole - Le Due Arbie Bianco IGT - 2017
Vagliagli, Tuscany, Italy
1000 years of practice, Dievole’s objective, starting with its own vineyard, is to recover the character of the historically indigenous Tuscan grapes and transfer them into the glass with the utmost respect for the authenticity of the terroir and varietal identity. Currently there are 80 hectares of vineyards, of which 55 are in production. They are situated at an average elevation of 350m above sea level and divided into 16 plots – all connected to each other.
Each plot has a specific profile mirroring the soil, the exposure and the microclimate. These vineyards – keeping in line with the characteristics of the Chianti Classico region – feature calcareous soil with abundant skeleton (pebbles and stones) as well as clay, sand and marl. Obviously, given the vastness of the vineyards, the soils differ significantly from one end to the other, giving the wine a delightful mosaic of nuances.
