Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This light to medium bodied Chianti has integrated scents of raspberry, cherry, pine and vanilla. Tannins are refined (open for 30 – 60 min) and the finish is medium. It should get better with age – put away for couple of years. Previously, I tried its sister vintage – Rocca Delle Macìe Chianti Classico Riserva 2005 (930966) which seemed to me more complex (I didn’t take notes), but at higher price. This wine was fairly well received by my group of friends. My impression: NICE. Tasted Mar/10.

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.
