Wine produced in full harmony with nature.

Cecchi has always operated within full respect of the environment and with regard to the people that work with them. Summarizing in a bottle the meaning of a path followed for many years seemed to be the natural result of the work carried out. Natio is a Chianti of splendid fragrance. The grapes, organically cultivated, ferment and age in steel tanks. Floral and spicy aromas for a palate give the taste the same simplicity in which the ingredients were cultivated.
