Wine Expert Note:

Cecchi Storia di Famiglia Chianti Classico is a remarkable wine that showcases the essence of the Chianti Classico region in Tuscany, Italy. In terms of appearance, this Chianti Classico displays a deep ruby red color, which is characteristic of Sangiovese-based wines. The intensity of the color suggests a wine with good structure and aging potential. On the nose, Cecchi Storia di Famiglia Chianti Classico offers an enticing bouquet of ripe red fruits, such as cherries and plums, accompanied by floral notes of violets. There is also a subtle hint of spice, adding complexity to the aromatic profile. When it comes to taste, this wine delivers a harmonious balance between fruitiness and acidity. The flavors of red berries and cherries dominate the palate, while well-integrated tannins provide a smooth and velvety texture. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a pleasant aftertaste that invites you to take another sip. Cecchi Storia di Famiglia Chianti Classico is an excellent choice to pair with traditional Italian dishes, such as pasta with tomato-based sauces, grilled meats, or aged cheeses. Its vibrant acidity and medium body make it a versatile wine that can complement a wide range of flavors. Read more

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

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.
