The Castellina in Chianti vineyards where Cecchi produces Gli Scudi line, consisting of three Chianti Classico DOCG wines
November 22, 2021

Introducing the Chianti Classico Gli Scudi line of the Cecchi family

Symbol of the brand's quality and centuries of manufacturing experience

The top quality of Cecchi’s Tuscan wine production is represented by Gli Scudi line, consisting of three Chianti Classico DOCG wines, the symbol of the brand’s age-long grape growing and winemaking experience.

Villa Cerna

Made from Sangiovese grapes grown on the estate’s best vineyards, this line highlights the values and history of Cecchi, a winery which has been operating for nearly 130 years in the wine business. Its labels are, in fact, the perfect synthesis of the company’s past, present and future. Cecchi’s Gli Scudi line, despite the recent difficulties and challenges that the Covid pandemic brought, has had an upward and positive sales trend and an interesting commercial performance abroad, in particular, in the US and Canada, as well as in Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Russia and Japan.

Le cantine della famiglia Cecchi

The Chianti Classico Storia di Famiglia DOCG label, obtained from the Castellina in Chianti vineyards, is the wine with which the winery identifies the most. Deep ruby-red colored verging on garnet red as it ages. Elegant on the nose, intense and lingering on the palate. A full structure, well balanced and very harmonious. Nearly one million bottles are produced per year.

The main market remains Italy, as evidence of Italian consumers’ interest in a brand which has marked the history of wine in our country. It has also gained many international recognitions, including 92 Wine Spectator points for the 2015 vintage, 93 points from James Suckling for the 2015 and 2018 vintages, and 3 Glasses from Gambero Rosso for the 2019 vintage.
