Leonardo Chianti – Italy Wine Chianti Wine New Zealand Online Wine Box
Near a town made famous by the great Leonardo da Vinci, a modern-day renaissance is underway. The Cantine Leonardo da Vinci, an innovative winemaking and grower’s cooperative, is producing a masterpiece in the historic region of Chianti. “These wines are the best of two worlds,” says winemaker Alberto Antonini, “a pleasing balance of classical tradition and cutting-edge technology. The end result is soft, fruit-forward Chianti more appealing to today’s tastes.” After serving as Winemaker for Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and Director of Enology for Marchesi Antinori, Alberto Antonini has become principal winemaker and Technical Director for the 200 small vineyard owners of the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci. Antonini brings with him the understanding of modern science and the sensibilities of the ancient winemaking heritage of the Chianti region.
