Natalie's Score: 87/100

Aromas of wild tart cherries and cedar forest. Smooth, savoury, mouth-watering, full-bodied and rustic. A meaty wine that's not too heavy. Great price.

Chianti food pairings: rustic Italian pastas and sausages.

Igor rated this wine as 89/100
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium bodied Chianti has floral notes along with distinct plum and cherry aromas. On the palate I found it very pleasant, and not as dry as some other Chianti wines I have tried in the past. I detected a hint of cedar on the palate as well as spicy plums. A nice finish makes this wine a great match for Italian and Tuscan dishes.
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is one of my favourite Chianti. It's one of those safe choices and you know you can't go wrong with it. I really enjoy its velvety taste. It is often my choice of wine when going to a "bring your own wine" restaurant because it can be paired easily with any meal.

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.
