90 Points  Wine Spectator

“Pretty cherry and strawberry notes pick up light touches of spice in this red. Elegant, but needs air to show the fruit and tone down the oak. Fine length. Drink now through 2019.”

“The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo offers a pure core of bright cherry fruit with cherry liqueur and candied cherry for added intensity. Besides that very obvious cherry theme, the bouquet makes room for added spice, leather and polished mineral. Rubiolo offers a very elegant and clean presentation for those who enjoy the bright flavors and crisp nuances of Chianti Classico.”

“The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is a gorgeous entry- level wine from Gagliole. Soft, fleshy and expressive, the 2013 hits all the right notes, with vibrant red cherry fruit and fabulous balance. Silky tannins add to an impression of finesse, while attractive floral and spiced notes give the wine an attractive upper register.”

$19.99

90 Points  Wine & Spirits

“Floral scents and bright red cherry flavors tinged with orange zest give a racy character to this wine. The fruit feels pure and unadorned, with sandy tannins that add grip without obstructing the fruit. As one of our tasters commented, “this is just what I want in a basic Chianti Classico.”

91 Points   Vinous / Antonio Galloni

“Dievole’s 2013 Chianti Classico is super-impressive. A blast of dark cherries, smoke, leather, tobacco and dark spices hit the palate as this large-scaled, virile Chianti Classico. Dark and brooding in style, the 2013 boasts magnificent depth in a large-scaled Chianti Classico endowed with tremendous depth. Look for the Dievole Chianti Classico to be one of the sleepers of the vintage.
