Keeping the Centuries-Old Chianti Tradition at Dianella Estate in Vinci, Italy


When Francesco and Veronica Passerin d'Entreves took over Dianella Estate in 2003, they started to apply the process of modernization in the vineyards and the cellar from the previous Billeri Family's centuries old wine making facilities. In its history, they have seen success at the beginning of the 19th century when Dianella's Chianti were being found on the tables of the best Italian trattorias and restaurants, and most importantly, on the tables of  Quirinal Palace, the then official royal residence of the Kings of Italy. With the contemporized facilities, Francesco and Veronica maintained their philosophy of keeping the respect for the territory's traditions to which in 2014, they procured the expertise of oenologist Franco Bernabei in preserving their bond with the territory and cultivating local grape varieties most especially Sangiovese.
