Winemaker's Notes:

85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 5% Syrah

15% of the wine matured in a combination of new and old French oak barrels

Color: Clear, ruby-red
Bouquet: Aromas of ripe plums, cherries and fresh red fruit accented by peppery notes. Palate: Well balanced and medium weight wine with flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit. Lively with a soft mineral finish and round tannins that linger in a long peppery finish.
Delicious with all starters, pastas and meat dishes. Serve slightly below room temperature (18° C).

About Cantine Leonardo da Vinci:

Established in 1961, Cantine Leonardo da Vinci sources only the finest grapes from premium Chianti and Chianti Classico vineyards. The result is premium, concentrated fruit which is then skillfully crafted into distinctive, fruit-forward, new world style Chianti.
