Chianti Classico
Riserva DOCG 2017


Novecento Chianti Classico Riserva was made to celebrate 900 years of history at Dievole. The story began all the way back in 1090, when, according to the contract conserved in the State Archives in Siena, “ two capons, 3 loaves of bread and 6 lucchesi coins forged from good silver” were paid as the annual rent for a vineyard in the “ divine valley,” Dievole.
