Donna Laura Alteo Chianti DOCG 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Clear ruby-red color with clean aromas of wild rose black currant and sour black cherry. Persistent flavors of red berries with soft tannins and an overall fine structure. This VinoFina offering contributes 25% of net profits to your Cause of Choice. ______________________________________________________________________________ ABOUT DONNA LAURA Donna Laura specializes in producing wines from first-class Sangiovese grapes grown in the Castelnuovo Berardenga region of Chianti Classico. A relatively new venture spearheaded by owner Lia Tolaini-Banville seeks to fulfill a need in the American market for high quality Sangiovese wines at an accessible price point that are both representative of the terroir of the region as well as international in style. To combine the best of tradition and modern characteristics two Sangiovese clones are grown in the Donna Laura vineyards. CH-20 brings structure while F9 a more modern clone augments the fruit intensity of the finished wine. One of the first areas to classify its borders and become delimited in 1716 Chianti Classico is fixed in minds worldwide as the proto-typical idyllic Italian wine region.
