DaVinci Chianti 2010 wine review by (PB)
Purple hue with decent Sangiovese bouquet of dried cherries and a touch of sweet spice.
Palate--Nice presentation of Tuscan making with gentle tannins and solid cherry and tart cherry flavor.
Finish lasts a bit with a subtle smokey finish.
Made with 90% Sangiovese grapes and 10% Merlot grapes with only 15% of the wine seeing oak.
At the $12 price point this is a good entry level Chianti suitable for any tomato based sauce and pasta.
