Da Vinci Chianti Riserva 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Wine pervades the culture of Tuscany; it's a birthright. And each bottle of DaVinci wine begins its life just outside the historic town of Vinci. There in the Tuscan hillsides, over 200 local winegrowers have joined together to form Cantine Leonardo da Vinci—an innovative growers' cooperative committed to producing authentic Tuscan wine. This pioneering cooperative encompasses over 500 hectares of vineyards. These vineyards are owned and run by local growers, such as Lorenzo Locci and Bruno Rossetti. Growers such as Lorenzo and Bruno are the heart and soul of Cantine Leonardo da Vinci. Lorenzo oversees his family vineyard. For 50 years the Locci family has grown grapes for DaVinci Wine. For the last 30 years, Bruno also has nurtured his 7 hectare vineyard with love, care and the Tuscan traditions he learned from his father. Lorenzo, Bruno, and all the passionate winegrowers who make up the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci cooperative ensure that DaVinci Wine is crafted with only the best fruit of the harvest. "The better the grapes, the better the wine," the growers say. With every glass of our wine, you can taste the fruit of their success. Read less

Inviting and classic sun drenched, dusty Sangiovese aromas with strawberry and raspberry notes that are slightly floral. Medium-light bodied in the mouth, this has soft strawberry and cranberry fruit, loamy clay notes and a touch of cinnamon-clove on the finish.

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.

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.
