Reviews and Ratings

Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I love a good, full-bodied Chianti and this fits the bill. A nose with notes of strawberries, plum, and cherries. Tastes of dark cherries and blackberries with balanced, silky tannins and a long finish. Great wine and a perfect pair with classic Italian dishes.
Karen Anderson reviewed this wine as follows:

100% Sangiovese grapes lovingly cared for by the Manetti family, aged in oak and delivering smooth spice notes and dark cherry fruit. I drank it while nibbling aged pecorino from Pienza and felt perfectly pleased with myself.

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.
