Through the many reinventions of Chianti, the Cecchi family has maintained a traditional approach focused on marrying longevity to drinkability – think more violets than vanilla – and with notable success. It all began back in 1893, when company founder Luigi Cecchi became a professional wine taster or 'palatista' – a surprisingly widespread profession in Europe at the time, and one which paved the way for the bottling of the first wines under the family name. The international success of the Cecchi wines was secured under another Luigi – the founder’s grandson – and now the fourth generation, in the shape of brothers Andrea and Cesare Cecchi, is at the helm.

Initially bottlers of the region’s wines, the family has invested heavily in vineyards and winemaking, moving into the Maremma and Umbria, where they make a Sagrantino Montefalco which, with its fleshy fruit and strong backbone, is a rising star of the area. But through it all the family’s heart remains in Chianti, and the wines that bear this classic name remain the Cecchis’ most valuable asset. Put simply, it’s one of the best value wines on our list.
