A highly concentrated wine with sweet and dense tannins, it features a unique and original character that is appreciated by wine lovers throughout the world.
The Sangiovese in this vintage was generous and of outstanding quality, first as grapes and then as juice, bestowing its Chianti-zone violet and earthy aromas, while at the same time displaying the highest elegance and persistence. This was complemented by the lush fruit of the Merlot, the smoke of the Petit Verdot, and the vibrancy of the Cabernet Sauvignon. There is beautiful choreography in the balance between the velvety tannins and alcohol in this new vintage.
The centuries-old relationship between the Cecchi family and Castellina in Chianti is the origin of Villa Cerna Chianti Classico. This fresh, modern style of Chianti has a vivid ruby colour that leads to an intensely floral bouquet of violet and iris over plum, cherry and spice. Silky tannins give a smooth mouth feel to the rich, perfumed flavours of dark cherry and dried flowers, while the mouthwatering acidity lends a refreshing quality to the stylish, dark fruit.
