The Cecchi family has created a smooth and silky Riserva that boasts the accessible qualities of the vintage, plus the elegance we hope for. The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Cerna is a steady and firm wine with plenty of red cherry and forest berry followed by toasted almond, blue flower and tilled earth.
Rated 97 by Decanter – Fabulous example of its type. Traditional and carried off in style, with aromas of cherry jam, strawberry, wood smoke and herbs on an enticing nose, before a supple, lifted palate of bramble, crunchy berries. cured meats and cloves. (Platinum) – 2020 World Wine Awards
