Bonizio Rosso
2013
2012

Bonizio is Cecchi’s interpretation of a contemporary way to drink good wine, without forgetting tradition. It is a skillful blend of choice Merlot from Tuscany’s coastal Maremma zone and select Sangiovese from the hills of Chianti Classico. The Mediterranean climate and sandy soil of the Maremma yield a perfectly ripe Merlot that is rich in fruit and good acidity.  The higher altitude and mineral laden clay soil of the Chianti Classico zone produce a flavorful Sangiovese with soft and persistent tannins.  Blending these two grape varieties makes for a wine that is round on the palate, elegantly balanced, and full of flavor.
