Da Vinci Chianti Classico 2006, Tuscany
Not obtrusive fruit, but rich colour for a chianti. I have enjoyed much of the 2006 chianti vintage, and this is a wine with lightish tannins but not over-fruited. Showing a bit of lightness at the rim, the intensity of flavour dips through the finish, ending with an almost sultana-like oxidative note. A decent by the glass option with pasta or lighter meat dishes.
