Tuscany, Italy

Dianella’s winemaking tradition goes all the way back to the end of 17th century. From the beginning of the 19th century, Dianella’s Chianti could be found all over the best italian trattorias and restaurants and also at the Quirinale Palace’s table during Gronchi’s government.

Dianella’s modern history begins in 2003, when Francesco and Veronica Passerin d’Entreves move to Dianella, starting a slow but inevitable remoderning process of the farming and tourism of the estate. The theme throughout this renovation was to respect the terroir’s traditions while always look to innovate both in the vineyard and in the cellar.

This careful approach is reflected in the wine and all the other produce of Dianella’s estate. A further step in this direction was taken in 2004 when the winemaking duties were handed over to Franco Bernabei, a strong supporter of terroir, local grape varieties and Sangiovese, the grape most produced within the estate.

DianellaAll Aria Aperta Rose

All’Aria Aperta is the rosé by Dianella. The grapes come from the oldest vineyard of the winery, the same from which are selected the grapes for the Chianti Riserva. Different maturation and vinification allow to obtain two different expressions of the same grapes. All’Aria Aperta is a rosé with strong personality that combines the fruit and lightness of the first sips with intense and decisive bouquet typical of the Sangiovese. It is ideal as an aperitif even if expresses all its richness in fish recipes, such as tuna and salmon, as well as fried dishes and carpaccio.

DianellaOlive Oil

Dianella’s oil gives us a unique story, just like its flavour: fruity but with a spicy note and a persistent taste. The olive grove is just over 15 hectar and in it you can find different qualities, all typical of this terroir: frantoio, leccino, moraiolo and pendolino. It smells of fresh olives and has a typical flavour of green leaf.
