The grapes for this Chianti are sourced from south-facing hillside vineyards outside Vinci and Cerreto Guidi in the western part of the Chianti region.
The wine is made with 90% Sangiovese grapes and 10% Merlot grapes. The grapes are gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at carefully controlled temperatures. This temperature control allows us to produce a Chianti with balanced tannins and rich fruit aromas and flavours. The wine is then fermented to dry for 8 days. About 15% of the wine is barrel aged for 6 months in new and used American oak barrels to add some complexity to it.
Da Vinci Chianti (2012)
“When the moon hits your eyes like a big pizza-pie….” etc, etc..!
A well-balanced wine of medium weight with jammy flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit. It has a deep crimson colour and is a lively wine with a soft mineral finish and round tannins that linger in a long, peppery finish.
Great price, great wine!
