Salute to Famiglia!
In a new post on Tuscan Vines, author John Fodera joins the Cecchis for dinner and comes away with a renewed appreciation for family. And the wines are good, too. An excerpt:
Recently I was fortunate enough to join the Cecchi family for dinner. A casual evening spent talking about Tre Bicchieri, Vendemmia 2015, business plans, sons, mothers and daughters. Sometimes, you can make family. Sometimes you’re adopted. It is hard to sit with these genuinely lovely people and not enjoy their company and their wine….
I wasn’t taking notes, but simply recorded a few thoughts while they were fresh in my mind. The Cecchi Vino Nobile is sourced from trusted growers that the family has had a relationship with for many years. Aged in large cask only, the wine is 90% Sangiovese and 10% other grapes such as Colorino or Canaiolo. No foreign grapes are used.
The color of the wine is very impressive, a deep ruby that trends to dark violet. Aromas are forward and classic with bright berry notes and lovely tobacco undertones. On the palate, it’s classic Sangiovese and the fruit gracefully sits on your palate.
