This is a bottle that’ll turn heads, make friends and definitely kick the party into gear! It’s a mega 5 litre sized bottle of Italian Chianti. With almost 50 standard drinks and the equivalent of six a half standard bottles of wine, you’ll need a few helpers to get through this one.
Leonardo Da Vinci – Italian painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, biologist, botanist and writer. But he wasn’t a wine maker. So it’s a bloody nice gesture that someone named a wine range after him.
Strict Italian wine laws mean that to call this Chianti (pronounced key-an-tee) grapes must be sourced entirely from one of the 8 Chianti regions and must be made with least 75% of the Sangiovese grape (this one has 85%).
Unoaked, soft, juicy and smooth style red. Fans of lighter style Pinot Noirs and Merlots will be right into this. Serve with antipasti, light meat and pasta dishes and say “Buon appetito!”
