Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia is the Cecchi family's wine of greatest expressions. Produced only in the best years and then from grapes carefully that have reached the highest quality in their vineyards in Castellina in Chianti. Macerated for 15 days for good extraction the wine aged 12 months in a combination of barriques and large tonneuax barrels. The Wine Advocate scored this 92 points saying "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia is a soft and more elaborate wine with dark cherry nuances followed by spice, leather and pressed violets. That floral element adds a touch of elegant grace. The wines reveals a darkly saturated ruby color and medium rich concentration. The mouthful shows some sweet cherry, but there is also a lot of zesty spice and fresh acidity that comes directly from the Sangiovese. Some 10% of the wine is Colorino and Cabernet Sauvignon." and James Suckling scored it 94 saying "A firm and silky red with blueberry, blackberry and mint undertones. This is a big wine that grows on the palate. Impressive. Needs time to come together but so much here. A triumph for Cecchi. Better in 2018."
