Notes from the Winemaker:

Riserva di FamigliaIn addition to gathering winemaking expertise gained by the winery in many years of aggressive agriculture, this wine is comprised of the passion that made the Cecchi family one of the symbols of Chianti Classico. The Riserva di Famiglia is produced only during vintages deemed to meet the high standards. When this occurs, the wine expresses an aromatic supply of extreme complexity in which dried flowers and spices give way to hints of earthiness and tobacco. It has a serious palate, complex and capable of evolving over time.

Tasting notes:
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.

Grapes varieties: 90% Sangiovese and 10% Other
Ageing: 12 months barrels / oak casks

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"A firm and silky red with blueberry, blackberry and mint undertones. This is a big wine that grows on the palate. Impressive. Needs time to come together but so much here. A triumph for Cecchi. Better in 2018." - (November 9, 2016)

92 Points - Robert Parker:
"The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia is a soft and more elaborate wine with dark cherry nuances followed by spice, leather and pressed violets. That floral element adds a touch of elegant grace. The wines reveals a darkly saturated ruby color and medium rich concentration. The mouthful shows some sweet cherry, but there is also a lot of zesty spice and fresh acidity that comes directly from the Sangiovese. Some 10% of the wine is Colorino and Cabernet Sauvignon."
