Details

Graciana Familia Cecchin, 100% Graciana, Organic, Wild Yeast, Fresh, Fruity and much more, fascinating wine and great value. Cecchin Graciana is a marvellous deep red with aromas of spice, vanilla and raspberry notes. Round and smooth in the mouth, there is a perfect combination of tannins from the wood and wine, which gives a long and very satisfying aftertaste.




At Bodega Cecchin, they play Rugby and make wine....although not at the same time. In these parts the oval ball and grapes like Carignan are revered as in areas of the Corbieres and Fitou. Although the origin of the Cecchin family is Italy having emigrated to Argentina in 1910. In 1959 Jorge and Pedro Cecchin fulfilled a dream and bought 11 hectares of vines in Mendoza and the current now much larger estate is run by their grandson Oscar Alberto. They are 100% organic in the vines and also use biodynamic practice in some areas although not all. Ferments are with wild yeast and sulphur use is kept to the bare minimum if at all, (although the 'Sin Sulfiti' Malbec wasn't made in 2014). These are really characterful wines, not the usual Argentinian fruit bomb, full of vitality and vinosity, give em a try, they are lovely.

  1. How good is this wine?

    Richard01/10/2017

    We came across this wine as part of a 'wine pairing' tasting menu at a very fine Lancashire restaurant, which opened this year, and had to source it for home enjoyment. It remains lovely! I had not bought from Buon Vino before, but they are now firmly on my wine merchants list, stocking some interestingly different wines, and with easy, friendly and efficient ordering and delivery services.
