Chiantis together

The July 2015 Wine Enthusiast includes new reviews from Italian Editor Kerin O’Keefe, and Ceechi checks in with two outstanding scores: 90 points for both the 2012 Chianti Classico and the 2011 Riserva di Famiglia. In addition, the Chianti Classico was selected for an “Editor’s Choice” award. Here are the reviews:

90 Cecchi 2012 Chianti Classico
Aromas of underbrush, wild flower, leather and ripe berry lead the nose. The juicy palate offers black cherry, cinnamon, anise and a hint of game alongside fresh acidity and velvety tannins. Drink through 2017. Terlato Wines International. Editor’s Choice. – K.O. abv: 13%  Price: $18

90 Cecchi 2011 Riserva di Famiglia (Chianti Classico)
Leafy underbrush, scorched earth, tobacco, vanilla, toasted oak and spiced plum aromas lead the nose. The smooth palate offers crushed black cherry, game, grilled herb, espresso and cooking spice. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide support. – K.O. abv: 13%  Price: $35
