Villa Cerna owned by the Famiglia Cecchi commissioned Steven Noble to illustrate their new label called “Villa Cerna Chiati Classico.” This illustration depicts the ancient monastery dating back to 1000 A.D. located in Castellini in Chianti, Italy . Luigi Cecchi noted not only its historical value, but also its excellent wine-making potential. Following the renovation of the Villa, at the foot of the hill, work began on building the wine-making and aging establishment. It was therefore important that the illustration follow the authentic and historic architectural features of the monastery.
