Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The Guicciardini and Storzzi families have been linked to famous names for centuries. You could play six degrees of separation with these fascinating dynasties. The Strozzis were contemporaries and rivals of the legendary Medici clan; the Guicciardinis are related by blood to the woman we know as ‘Mona Lisa’ and by marriage to Winston Churchill. They continue to make wine at one of the finest estates in Tuscany. My note: A mocha-coffee-infused nose with gorgeous layers of black fruit and smoke. Full-bodied with polished tannins. Decant 1-2 hours. Terrific finish. Lots to enjoy here!

Food pairings: rack of lamb, lasagna, turkey (dark meat), roast veal.

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.
