Natalie's Score: 85/100

Lots of mouth-watering acidity that cries out for a hearty meat dish. Black fruit with smoke and robust tannins with a smoky finish. Decant 2 hours.

Chianti Classico food pairings: peppery grilled steak, roast beef, pasta with meat sauce, char-grilled sausages, steak topped pizza.

Barbecue season may have officially come and gone, but this Chianti Classico's aromas of hickory smoke, smoked meat and cherry will have you running outside to fire up the grill again. Fruit filled with fine ripe tannins and a lingering smoky finish. Evoke that summer outdoor-dining feeling and enjoy. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, May 2013

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.
