The March 2016 issue of the Robb Report celebrates La Dolce Vita, detailing “Italy’s Genius for Living the Good Life,” so of course they have something to say about wine. Cecchi wine – and COEVO, to be perfectly percise. Brett Anderson writes:
In 1893, when a 30-year-old farmer from Poggibonsi made the decision to become a professional wine taster, he launched an enduring legacy. From an early age, Luigi Cecchi exhibited a true gift for evaluating the quality of wine, and he parlayed his remarkable palate into a professional career as a consultant to many of Tuscany’s important producers—and later as a producer in his own right. The fourth generation of the family, represented by brothers Cesare and Andrea, links this past with the present through the Cecchi 2011 Coevo Toscana ($106, cecchiusa.com), a superbly delineated Super Tuscan whose black-red color anticipates its fragrances of cherry, blackberry, cocoa, and bay leaf. The wine’s profound structure and fine-grained tannins are softened by a textured, complex finish of black walnut and ripe nectarine.
