Stunning bottle-aged Sangiovese (90%) from one of the great Italian producers. This is powerful wine - full-bodied, meaty and showing intense fruit weight.It is drinking well now but has plenty of gas in the tank if you choose to cellar.
The winery writes: "Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia is certainly the most representative wine of Cecchi. Produced only in years in which the grapes reach the quality desired it comes from the area of Castellina in Chianti. The colour of excellent limpidity is of an intense ruby red. The aroma reveals broad and ethereal notes of ripe fruit and spices. The structure is elegant."
