Review: **+ $$ Casa Vinicola Cecchi Chianti Classico,Chianti, Italy, 2003

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Cecchi Chianti Classico.

By way of background, opening thoughts:  Today we'll try a modestly priced Chianti Classico with a full 10 years of aging since vintage date.

Original tasting and review : This is Casa Vinicola Cecchi Chianti Classico,Chianti, Italy, 2003, finished at 13% alcohol.

In the glass: Light ruby red with some brick overtones.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows tangy age and bright red dusty fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be a bit past its proper age, but perhaps with a certain sweetness and fruit remaining.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact light, with fresh red raspberry notes.  Clean, modest finish with bright notes.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars with a plus for longevity on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
