Sangiovese IGT Toscana

The Unmistakable Taste of the Preeminent Tuscan Grape

The Cecchi family was one of the first wineries to use the Sangiovese grape with the goal of introducing it to the entire world. Achieved by an undisputed propensity of the Tuscan hills, this wine expresses fragrance and typical aromas of the vines that most links it to the oenological history of the region. The careful selection of the grapes and the fermentation and ageing in steel tanks give this wine a distinct flavor of Maraschino cherry for a long-bodied luscious taste.
