New member here, first time posting!

I was under the impression that CC Riservas needed to be aged for 24 months prior to release.

One bottle I was looking at, Cecchi Riserva di Famiglia Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 seems to have been aged only 12 months, per the technical sheet.

Does this make sense? Is there something I am missing or is my information on riservas wrong?

 

Thanks

I think they have used the terminology "Riserva" in a far broader sense than the DOCG designation Chianti Classico Riserva. Note that the wine is a "Riserva di Famiglia" which is not the designation for a DOCG classified Riserva wine. I think they are being misleading. It is clearly only a designated Chianti Classico
