Wine Description:
Cecchi Chianti is a classic Italian wine produced by the Cecchi family, who have been making wine for over a century. The wine is made in the Chianti appellation, which is known for its rolling hills and picturesque vineyards. The grapes used to make Cecchi Chianti are grown in vineyards that benefit from the region's warm climate and well-draining soils. The winemaking process involves traditional techniques, including fermentation in stainless steel tanks and aging in oak barrels. The resulting wine is a medium-bodied red with a bright ruby color and aromas of red fruit and spice. On the palate, it is dry and well-balanced with a refreshing acidity and a long finish. Cecchi Chianti is a versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of foods, making it a popular choice for any occasion. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

This Cecchi Chianti Classico offers a ripe, intense nose of wild berry and earthy spice. On the palate, it is smooth and supple, with ripe cherry and ripe raspberry flavors backed by subtle notes of dried herbs and earth. The tannins are soft, and the finish is long and lingering. A great Chianti for the price, it pairs well with grilled meats and rustic pasta dishes. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
