Food Pairings for Cantine Leonardo da Vinci Chianti Riserva da Vinci
Started rough (alcoholic) but mellowed in the glass, warmed the couple up on a cold windy New Years afternoon.
A nice, lighter-bodied, balanced chianti. Smooth finish and light on the tannins.
It may not be terribly cool to love Da Vinci chianti, but I love it. But only on day 2, after leaving the bottle corked overnight. To be honest, when first opened, it struck me as generic. . . http://wineguider.wordpress.com/2010/11/12/da-vinci-chianti-review/
It's an excellent Chianti, great with roasted veggies and full of robust flavors. I usually serve it with grilled dishes and other roasted dishes because it just complements that earthy flavor so well.
External Reviews for Cantine Leonardo da Vinci Chianti Riserva da Vinci
Superfruity and clean, with crushed berries, black cherry and milk chocolate on the nose and palate. Soft and round, with loads of flavor. Fun to drink. Drink now.
Fresh and clean, with nice blueberry flavors. Medium-bodied, with a crisp finish. Drink now.
Da Vinci delivers attractive ruby brilliance with sweet notes of red berry, leather, spice, espresso and toasted oak. This is approachable on every level and promises to make an excellent match to pasta and meat dishes.
This really is the quintessential pizza or pasta wine. It offers medium intensity and build, just as Chianti should, and big notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, smoke and leather.
A pleasant red, with blackberry and a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with tight, young tannins, lots of fresh fruit and a medium finish. Best after 2006.
Lively, with plum, berry and a hint of milk chocolate on a simple, fruity palate. Delicious.
What a nice surprise! Here is a rich Chianti with a dark, impenetrable appearance and elegant aromas of spice, bursting red cherry and blueberry preserves. The wine is chewy and soft with loads of pulpy fruit on the close. Pair it with steak or mixed grilled meats.
Cantine Leonardo was founded in 1961, and its first vintage was 1965. At the outset the co-operative sold wine in bulk, and it was only in 1971 that Cantine Leonardo began selling bottled wines. The co-operative has approximately 150 member growers. The quality of the Cantina Leonardo wines is attributable to the ethos of quality that has spread through Leonardo since the arrival of Alberto Antonini as consultant winemaker at the end of 1996.
This wine is clear, ruby-red in colour, with reasonable depth and good structure. Perfumes of cherries and fresh red fruit mingle with spicy, peppery notes. The wine is lively and fresh in the mouth, with soft, rounded tannins. Good intensity, attractive structure and fine, long length.
