The name “Dievole” officially appeared for the first time in a contract in which Rodolfino and Vinoizio paid two capons, three loaves of bread, and 6 silver Lucca denari for a promise of the divine vineyards. It was on the 10th of May 1090. Dievole covers an area of 400 hectares within the Chianti Classico territory in Vagliagli, about 12 km north of Siena. Beginning from 450 meters above sea level, the medieval hamlet where Villa Dievole is perched, overlooks the valley in which the estate slopes down to the southeast in gentle rolling hills ending at an altitude of around 300 meters. Under new leadership, the estate and the wines are being returned to their former glory.
