Rich and velvety in the mouth, although sweet, it is well balanced with good acidity.Have a bottle or keep a bottle in the fridge and finish off any dinner party with just a glass for guests. It is sweet so will work beautifully with any desserts or particularly well with cheese.

Leonardo da Vinci Winery was founded in 1961 when thirty small winegrowers decided to combine forces in order to share their passion for winemaking and the costs of building a single cellar to produce wine from the red and white grapes in this territory. When the winery was founded in Vinci, in the Chianti winegrowing area in the heart of Tuscany, it only consisted of 70 hectares of vineyards. Over the last fifty years the cooperative has expanded enormously. Today it has approximately 750 hectares which also extend into the territory of Siena. The winery, which started up in Vinci, birthplace of the genius Leonardo, and where it still has its headquarters, has now spread as far as the area of Montalcino.Hand picked into small trays, the bunches of grapes are dried on straw mats in well ventilated, drying rooms, until the February following the vintage. The dried grapes are pressed and vinified in the traditional manner. The resulting must is racked into small oak barrels, known as caratelli, where it remains for four years, fermenting slowly, because of the high sugar levels, and ageing. The caratelli are kept in the vinsantaia which is subject to extremes of temperature during winter and summer.
