Cecchi Riserva di Famiglia Chianti Classico DOCG 2015 Review

This is a great Riserva, a step up from their standard Classico, and fortunately it is 100% Sangiovese, showing classic sour cherry and floral aromas with some earth and a kiss of oak. It is drinking fine right now but the tannin is still a bit grumpy and could use a year or so to reduce into the wine, exposing more tertiary aromas not yet awakened. This might be a good wine to have a case of lying around to watch evolve whenever good friends pop by.
