Winemaker Notes - The Da Vinci Chianti Riserva is 100% Sangiovese. It is ruby red in color with distinct cherry aromas balanced by slight smoky oak. As of 2003, Chianti Riserva must be aged for at least 2 years and 3 months and must be at least 12.5% alcohol. Prior to 2003, the previous aging mandatory was 3 years.

'Da Vinci Chianti Riserva is ruby red with succulent aromas of spicy fruit and a hint of smoky oak. Concentrated flavors of ripe plum, wild raspberry and spice are supported by balanced, chewy tannins and a long finish. Wine Buyer Best Buy

Winemaker's Notes:

The Da Vinci wines are produced at the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci co-operative, founded in 1961. It has approximately 150 member growers whose vineyards are located on the hilly areas around Vinci and Cerreto Guidi approximately 30km from Florence. As part of a new ethos of improved quality, the co-operative brought in consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini at the end of 1996 since when their wines have noticeably improved. This ethos of quality encompasses every aspect of their operation: from better work in the vineyard to a more careful selection of fruit; vinification of separate parcels of fruit; bleeding the must in order to increase the proportion of solids to liquids in the fermentation tank, thus ensuring greater extraction of flavour and colour, and early bottling to ensure that the fruit is retained rather than dissipated. The Chianti Riserva is deep garnet in colour with perfumes of vanilla, spice and violets on the nose. On the palate the fruit character is intense and autumnal, with flavours of dark plums and blackberries. The spicy oak character is well-integrated with the ripe but restrained fruit and rounded tannins.
