Da Vinci – Chianti
The grapes are gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Temperature is always controlled between 20 and 30°C (70-80°F) together with frequent daily pump-overs.
This temperature control produces a Chianti with balanced tannins and rich fruit aromas and flavours.
The wine is then fermented to dry for 8 days.
About 15% of the wine is barrel aged for 6 months in new and used American oak barrels to add some complexity to it.
