Just got a bottle of wine , and a bottle of the olive oil. Beautiful pieces, I'm going to crack open the wine tonight and see how it goes.

According to our vendor, the bottles sold to me were the first in the Midwest. They go on sale Oct 7th, at the Chop House.

febbraio 2010 Diadema Wine & Champagne

Diadema Wine & Champagne, a brand of Fattoria Villa L’Olmo, a Tuscan winery reflecting centuries of traditions, has its headquarters in Impruneta, Tuscany.

At Diadema, uncompromising quality is the topmost objective, and systemic, professional direction is exercised over every step in the production process, from winemaking through to packaging.

They pay painstaking attention to every detail of its products, wines, olive oil, and Champagnes, considering all of them “elements of pleasure and of atmosphere” deeply linked to nature, to the earth and its seasons, and to the emotions of man.

Unique, inimitable labels and vintages, designed with Swarovski crystals, as well as the most refined packaging, have always made Diadema bottles true jewels and signify that these are highly selective products, fruits of a rigorous, professional selection process by oenologist Stefano Chioccioli.

The new developments Diadema debuted at Vinitaly are many and impressive, all swathed in that elegance and finesse distinctive to Swarovski crystals and to the diamonds on their labels: splendid vintages of Diadema Rosso IGT Toscana 2006 and 2007, Diadema Bianco IGT 2007, Diadema Rosato 2008 IGT Toscana, Diadema Olio Extravergine di Oliva Italiano.

The world of Champagne has now been enriched by Diadema Champagne Dosage Zéro, whose Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have proven capable of providing stunning complexity and opulent expression, and by Diadema Champagne Cuvée Rosé, a veritable explosion of crisp red berry fruit.

Ageing in French oak barriques of part of the wine has made it a velvet-smooth interpretation of the international style as well.
