Cecchi Featured in Tasting Panel Magazine

In the September 2015 issue, Tasting Panel magazine captures the leading role that Cecchi has played in exploring the western edge of Tuscany, Marellino di Scansano in Maremma. Writes Lana Bortolot:

When the Cecchi family bought property in Morellino di Scansano, they become the first Italian producer with roots in another region to invest there. “My father discovered this area could have potential—he said Maremma is like Napa in the 1970s,” recalls Andrea Cecchi, 56, the younger of the two brothers running the estate.

And indeed, papa Cecchi was prescient. Morellino di Scansano was granted DOC status in 1978 and upgraded to DOCG in 2007. The estate upgraded, too. Starting with 25 hectares of vineyard in 1996, it now consists of 180 hectares cultivated for grapes (100 of which are owned and the rest under long-term lease), making the Cecchi family the largest owner of cultivated vineyards within the Morellino di Scansano DOCG.
