Our special this week is the Cecchi Chianti Riserva DOCG (Tuscany, Italy) – $20.99, regularly $25.99.

The love story of Luigi and Anita Cecchi began in Poggibonsi, Tuscany in the 1950s, when Luigi saw Anita whizz past on her motor scooter. Intrigued by such an adventurous woman, he pursued and married her. Together, they poured their hearts and souls into the Cecchi Winery in Tuscany.

The story of Cecchi actually dates back to 1893, when Luigi’s grandfather – also Luigi – took his experience from working at some of the most famous agricultural companies in Tuscany and set out on his own as a wine merchant.

Over the years, their house reputation is built around their Chianti Classico’s of elegance and finesse. Nowadays, their two sons, Cesare and Andrea are now at the company’s helm, as the commercial director and the production and technical director, respectively. Inheriting the same enthusiasm and entrepreneurial know-how of their forefathers, they are focused on sustainability and their wine’s ability to express its territory of origin.

Cecchi wines are a pure expression of their Tuscan terroir and crafted to be enjoyed around the family dinner table and our weekly special, their Chianti Classico Riserva certainly fits the bill with a glowing deep garnet color with glints of copper, the nose on this Chianti Riserva starts with dark cherry fruit, subtle gun flint and sage followed on the palate by a woodsy spice note and fine acid structure all leading to a smooth and balanced finish – this is a versatile wine to serve at the dinner table.
