Winemaker's Notes:

The Highest Rated Chianti under $15 in last 10 years from Wine Spectator. "Juicy, Fruity, Medium-bodied wine…a serious buy at this price."

To produce the DaVinci DOCG Chianti, the grapes were sourced from south facing hillside vinehards located in the territories of Vinci and Cerreto Guidi, on the western side of the Chianti region. The vineyards average in age from 15-20 years old and are comprised of 1,800 vines per acre. The soil posseses adequete calcium and nitorgen content and is comprised of moderate clay which allows for optimum drainage.
