Wine Description:
Cecchi Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia is a premium red wine produced by the renowned Cecchi family in the Chianti Classico appellation of Tuscany, Italy. The wine is primarily made from Sangiovese grapes grown in the family's vineyards, which are characterized by their high altitude and rocky soil. The winemaking process involves careful selection of the best grapes, followed by fermentation and aging in oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months. The resulting wine is a complex and elegant expression of the Sangiovese grape, with notes of red fruit, spice, and a hint of vanilla from the oak aging. This wine is a perfect example of the traditional Chianti Classico style, and a must-try for any wine enthusiast. Read more

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.
