The Dievole estate was founded in the year 1090, some 15 km north of Siena. According to records, the one-hectare parcel was rented by the partners for the price of two chickens, three loaves of bread and six silver coins. The property was then given the name Dieulele – which means ‘If God wills it’. Today Dievole is composed of four estates altogether; the estate that gives the group its name cultivates 80 hectares of vineyard in the heart of Chianti. Along with this property, the Dievole group also includes the vineyards of Podere Brizio (9 hectares) in Montalcino, as well as the estate Le Due Arbie (70 hectares) west of Siena and the Tenuta Meraviglia (27 hectares) in Bolgheri.
