The I Capolavori collection is a selection of the most famous Italian wine denominations, paired with works of art by Leonardo da Vinci. I Capolavori are a synthesis of Italian beauty and excellence, objects to show off with pride, a testament to Leonardo's genius and a tribute to his life: an extraordinary and infinite adventure of art and science and nature.

San Giovanni Battista - Brunello di Montalcino

Leonardo’s art and in this famous wine are the epitome of Tuscany: power, classicism and elegance, a harmonious combination of refined characteristics.

Bacco - Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Bacchus embodies humankind’s love of wine, nature and grapes. This sumptuous masterpiece of Italian oenology is a reflection of the superb quality of Leonardo’s work.

Vergine delle Rocce - Chianti Riserva

The landscape in this Leonardian masterpiece is typically Tuscan and nuanced, just like the fruit of this famous Reserve wine. Ripe grapes are left on the skins for about 10-12 days. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures of 27-28°C. Pumping-over is performed frequently for a short while, and the saignée or "bleeding off" technique is used to increase the richness of noble polyphenols. Once removed from the skins, wine is kept in steel containers to complete malolactic fermentation. Then wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 10 months.

Vergine delle Rocce - Chianti

Ripe grapes are left on the skins for about 10-12 days. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures of 27-28°C.

Ritratto di Musico - Barolo

For Leonardo, music was a harmony of different voices and instruments. Similarly, this Barolo has a majestic appearance coupled with wonderful olfactory and gustatory notes.

Gli Angeli - Rosso di Montalcino

Leonardo’s art and this Montalcino wine are the epitome of Tuscany: power, classicism and elegance, a harmonious combination of refined characteristics.

Dama con l'Ermellino - Pinot Grigio

The softness of touch, the Lady’s slender finger caressing the ermine’s fur. The softness of fruit, the sweetness of the perfume and the flavour of the most famous Italian white wine.

The purchase of wine was regularly noted by Leonardo in his shopping list, perhaps next to his incomparable multi-volumetric drawings and definitive marks.

As compensation for his supreme masterpiece, The Last Supper, on April 26, 1499 Leonardo received a gift from Ludovico il Moro: the ownership of a vineyard located a few steps from the church where he created the Last Supper. Leonardo's vineyard in Milan is in fact, as the crow flies, around 300 meters from the wall of the Santa Maria delle Grazie refectory, also painted by Leonardo.

It is thanks to his wine that Leonardo's greatest and most enlightening treasures are found: his humanity, his spirit, his soul, height, depth and sublime sensibility.
