Cecchi Storia di Famiglia Chianti Classico 2015

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice edgy red berries backed almost immediately by some nice dryness, tannins and acidity. If there’s anywhere this wine is a little light on it’s the mid palate. We paired it with rabbit stew and it went fine, holding it’s own. A good Chianti Classico, but not awesome. I would give it an 87-88.
