Da Vinci Chianti2008
Italy

Ah, chianti…that unassuming pizza and pasta standard best drunk from an old fashioned glass. Well, break out the Riedel, because Da Vinci elevates the light and lively varietal to an impressive level of sophistication. Smells so good — berries and plums and spice. It’s a study in contrasts, too. Deep, dark red color…but light legs. Medium bodied…but chewy tannins and a dry, leathery finish. Lush with strawberry and bittersweet chocolate flavors. Surprisingly luscious and balanced. A Renaissance masterpiece!

Da Vinci 2006 Riserva Chianti – Sangiovese Red Wine Note, this is a different vintage.
