Overview

A bright, youthful ruby red in colour. Attractive red fruit aromas lead to a palate full of juicy, ripe berry fruit and hints of smoke and spice. A lifted, fresh wine that finishes on a perfumed, blackberry note. This is a co-operative with a difference, imbued with an ethos of quality that ensures good fruit and excellent wines. This ethos encompasses every aspect of the operation from vineyard to winery, where Riccardo Pucci produces an intense Chianti, with lovely colour and a robust character that epitomizes the style of wine produced in these hills outside Empoli. A great value wine from one of my favorite Italian regions. Right now, eVines is offering free shipping when you purchase as few as six bottles. I know that you are gonna love that. Cheers!

Meet the winemaker: 
DaVinci winemaker Riccardo Pucci has been making wine for 15 years. To explain his wine-making process - in mid-September, during harvest, each grower picks their grapes on their own and brings the grapes to the winery facility. Riccardo and his team select which grapes will be used for which wine and in which combination. The best of the best make their way into the DaVinci wines. Ricardo says, “The emotion comes from the work that I do. Taking the wine though its different phases is like taking a baby by the hand, knowing that it’s now in the bottle and someone is drinking it who appreciates it.”
