Natalie's Score: 91/100

A truly classic Chianti in all senses, from signature aromas of dark fruit, sun-dried tomato and dried herbs, to mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes from pasta in tomato sauce to spicy sausages. Great price.

Chianti Classico Riserva food pairings: pasta, duck ragĂș with pappardelle, cold meats, lamb chops, pizza.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

A very accessible Chianti that's easy to love. Yes, the acidity is there but in balance. Attractive aromas of dark cherry, earthy nuances and some spice. This wine is a blend of mostly Sangiovese grapes, with a splash of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
