Dianella’s winemaking tradition extends back to the late 1600s, chronicling a history of viticulture and oenology in Tuscany of over 300 years. Since the beginning of the 19th century, Dianella’s Chianti could be found at the best Italian trattorias and restaurants, and in the 20th century it even made its way to the president’s table in Quirinale Palace. Dianella’s contemporary history began in 2003, when Francesco and Veronica Passerin d’Entreves moved to the property to modernize the estate’s agriculture and tourism. Throughout the renovation process they aimed to respect the terroir’s traditions while innovating in both the vineyard and cellar. In 2004 the winemaking duties were handed over to Franco Bernabei, a strong supporter of terroir focused wines, organic farming, and local grape varieties, especially Sangiovese, the grape most prevalent at the estate. Dianella’s careful and sustainable approach is reflected not only in its wines, but also in its other products, ranging from olive oil to cosmetics.
