The story of Donna Laura wines is one of family and discovery. Canadian-born vintner Lia met her Aunt Laura who inspired an appreciation for Italian culture, food and art and they decided to start a family business together. This discovered passion certainly transpires into the wine; each rich in flavor and character. Chianti is the most commonly consumed Italian wine in the world.
After tasting this glorious wine, there's no doubt it’s so popular! The stunning clear ruby-red wine has tones of blackcurrant, wild rose and sour black cherry that are not too overpowering. It has a fine structure, with persistent flavors of red berries with soft tannins. This wine is medium-bodied and is on the drier side, but has a pleasant, lively finish and makes for perfect table wine. Overall this wine is drinkable and light, making it great for those hot summer days shared with friends!
