Wine Description:
Cecchi Sangiovese di Toscana is a premium red wine produced by the renowned Cecchi family in the heart of Tuscany. This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, which are grown in the vineyards located in the Chianti Classico appellation. The vineyards are characterized by their high altitude, rocky soil, and excellent exposure to the sun, which results in grapes with intense flavors and aromas. The winemaking process involves a careful selection of the best grapes, followed by fermentation and aging in oak barrels for several months. The resulting wine is a classic expression of Sangiovese, with a deep ruby color, aromas of red fruits and spices, and a medium-bodied, well-structured palate. It is a perfect match for grilled meats, pasta dishes, and aged cheeses. 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.

The renowned winemaker Alessandro Cellai, known for his work at Castellare and Rocca di Frassinello, is realizing his own dream on the small 3-hectare estate of Podere Monastero. Located in Castellina, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, he cultivates the grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and, somewhat atypical for Tuscany, Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir). From these grapes, he crafts only two wines - the single-varietal "La Pineta" (Pinot Nero) and the blend "Campanaio" (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot). These are two exceptional wines with a lot to offer.

Poggio Anima Belial Sangiovese Toscana is a distinguished wine, exclusively crafted from 100% Sangiovese grapes cultivated in a single vineyard near Siena, within the Chianti Colli Senesi zone, though not explicitly labeled as such. Guided by the expertise of winemaker Riccardo Campinoti, who strongly believes in the vineyard's influence on wine quality, this particular site, boasting old vines aged between 26 and 46 years, holds a special place. The hand-harvested grapes undergo whole-berry fermentation, including 20 days of skin contact, emphasizing color extraction over excessive tannins. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, both alcoholic and malolactic, the wine matures in stainless tanks, with a small portion resting in neutral Slavonian big barrels for eight months before bottling. This Sangiovese expresses the essence of its terroir, delivering a harmonious blend of fruit, structure, and elegance.
