Chianti is at the heart of Italian wine and the story of Cecchi is a tale of romance. And it’s centered around wine so that’s instantly got our attention!

It was the 1950s and Luigi (a young man whose family had a winery) couldn’t help but check out a hot little thing called Anita (a young woman who made wine barrels) cruising past his favourite coffee joint on her little skooter. A few dates later Luigi romantically proposed – “We can either break up or get married, what do you think?”. She said yes and he insisted they got it over and done with because it was nearly time to harvest the grapes. We told you it was romantic!

The Cecchi family have been making wine since the early 1900s and today Anita runs the show with her two sons, Cesare and Andrea.

Pronounced “key-an-tee” – strict Italian wine laws mean grapes must be sourced entirely from one of the 8 Chianti regions and must be made with least 75% of the Sangiovese grape (this one has 90%). Deciphering Italian wine labels can be a mission, which is why they have a handy three-tier system of quality. DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) is at the top so you know it’s the flash stuff!

Deliciously medium bodied, soft and juicy red – perfect with spaghetti and meatballs, full flavoured pizzas or cold cuts like salami!
