    Winemaker 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.

    Donna Laura winery specializes in producing three red wines from first-class Sangiovese grapes grown in the Chianti Classico region. This 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. High density vine planting and low yields help to further achieve ideal levels of fruit concentration.

    This balance of old and new character initiated in the vineyard, in cooperation with modern winemaking techniques, makes these three red wines: Ali, Alteo and Bramosia delicious to drink on their own, or equally pleasing with a variety of different foods. Donna Laura's wine is of the highest quality and the best value from this region.

    Famous for its food-friendly, approachable wines and their storied history, Chianti is perhaps the best-known wine region of Italy. This appellation within Tuscany has it all: sweeping views of rolling hills, endless vineyards, the warm Mediterranean sun, hearty cuisine and a rich artistic heritage. Chianti includes seven subzones: Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Rufina, Montalbano, Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane, Colli Aretini and Montespertoli, with area beyond whose wines can be labeled simply as Chianti.

    However the best quality comes from Chianti Classico, in the heart of the Chianti zone, which is no longer a subzone of the region at all but has been recognized on its own since 1996. The Classico region today is delimited by the confines of the original Chianti zone protected since the 1700s.

    Chianti wines are made primarily of Sangiovese, with other varieties comprising up to 25-30% of the blend. Generally, local varieties are used, including Canaiolo, Colorino and Mammolo, but international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are allowed as long as they are grown within the same zone.

    Basic, value-driven Chianti is simple and fruit-forward and makes a great companion to any casual dinner. At its apex, Chianti is full bodied but with good acidity, firm tannins, and notes of tart red fruit, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic and tobacco. Chianti Riserva, typically the top bottling of a producer, can benefit handsomely from a decade or two of cellaring.
