I thought this wine had great balance. I liked how dry the wine was, yet had a buttery smooth finish. I'd be interested in trying other vintages/varietals of this vineyard.

A deep ruby red, this wine reminds me of the time I spent in Tuscany. It opens with bold notes of cherry and plum. The tannins are mild, and there are hints of both oak and leather. I also detect a mild hint of the irony earth which so characterizes the region mid-pallet. A perfect table wine to accompany any meat dish.

I enjoyed this wine. I thought it was well-balanced. I prefer dry wines and this one gave me that but also added a smooth finish with very little tannin. I'd be interested in tasting other varietals/vintages from this vineyard.

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.

Color: Clear, ruby-red Bouquet: Aromas of ripe plums, cherries and fresh red fruit accented by peppery notes. Palate: Well balanced and medium weight wine with flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit. Lively with a soft mineral finish and round tannins that linger in a long peppery finish. - Winery

Deep crimson in color with aromas of cherries and red fruit balanced by soft, round tannins.

DaVinci Chianti is a well-balanced wine of medium weight with jammy flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit. It has a deep crimson color and is a lively wine with a soft mineral finish and round tannins that linger in long, peppery finish.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Da Vinci wines are produced at the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci cooperative, founded in 1961. It has approximately 150 member growers whose vineyards are located on the hilly areas around Vinci and Cerreto Guidi. 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 vineyards are situated on hillside slopes in the Chianti zone. The vineyard rows lie perpendicular to the steepest part of the slope where possible and face south to guarantee more sunshine during the day. Soils here were formed by centuries of accumulated silt and clay sandstone with marl, splintered shale, being the primary component. They are deep and permeable and therefore reasonably good at retaining water. The resulting wine is bright, ruby red in colour with perfumes of cherries and fresh red berry fruit on the nose. On the palate it is ripe and lively, with spiced berry fruit characters and a rounded supporting structure. Tannins are soft and ripe, with a hint of spice from the judicious oak ageing.
