Villa Cerna's Chianti Classico is a step up from the regular Classico, Primocolle, being made with miniscule yields and older vines of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino. The wine is aged in medium sized barrels for 14 months, and only produced in the best years, 2016 being a great example. The wine is powerful with grippy tannins which envelope the palate bringing waves of flavours of dark forest fruits, back cherries, victoria plums with added notes of saddle leather, violets and dried rose petals.
"Since the 1960s, the Cecchi family has made Chianti Classico with meticulously chosen sangiovese and a little colorino. The result is deep violet with attractive red fruit and benefits from decanting" Will Lyons, Sunday Times 24th May 2020
