Da Vinci wines are produced at the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci co-operative, founded in the early 60’s. It has approximately 150 member growers whose vineyards are located on the hilly areas around Vinci and Cerreto Guidi outside of Florence. The Chianti Riserva is fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks and is temperature controlled to ensure excellent color and supple tannins. Once fermented to dry, the wine is then aged in French and American oak barrels and finally in bottles. In total, this wine is barrel and bottled aged for 2 years and 9 months before leaving the winery.
Da Vinci Chianti Reserva (2009)
The Chianti Riserva has a distinctly fruity bouquet with dark cherry overtones that are balanced with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Its flavor reflects the fruit of the bouquet and is supported by balanced tannins. You will notice flavors of concentrated black fruit, plums, and ripe cherry fruit with spicy undertones all balanced by fine soft tannins and a full mineral finish
