Natalie's Score: 87/100
A good grip on the palate with this robust Italian red wine from the heart of Tuscany, and dry and full-bodied layers of black fruit. Savory and chewy. Great with hearty meat dishes. This wine is made in the hills that circle the town of Vinci, where, yes, Leonardo da Vinci was born. Finishes with anise, black cherry and earthy notes. Try it with pasta in a meat sauce.
Chianti Riserva food pairings: pasta with tomato sauce and fresh herbs, basil pesto, red wine stew, pizza.

|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This well-priced Chianti has rich aromas of dried dark fruits (figs, prunes), allspice, leather, and violets. Others at the tasting I attended also detected an earthiness and menthol on the nose. The flavours are predominantly of figs, prunes and dark chocolate. This dry wine is medium-full bodied with some anise on the finish. This wine would pair with a variety of meaty Italian dishes but I think it would go well with richly herbed poulty and pork dishes given it's medium tannins, typical of Sangiovese-based wines.

Oct 23, 2014: Tasted blind at NCSG Vintage pre-release event.
Medium ruby garnet, stewed and dried dark fruit, cocoa, earthy, leather, spice and some balsamic notes. Medium bodied, round and silky on the palate with dark sweet cherry, spice and a little earthy with good acidity, dusty tannins and a medium finish. Nice wine that can be enjoyed alone or with braised beef or meaty lasagna over the next several years.
|This Italian red wine was produced by Cantine Leonardo da Vinci and matured in small oak barrels which gives it a vanilla spice finish. Classic Chianti with aromas spicy tart cherry and earth. - Community Wine Reviews|
