Natalie's Score: 88/100

Attractive aromas of juicy black plums and berries on the nose and palate of this smooth, full-bodied Italian red wine. Smoky, tangy goodness with aromas of black cherries, plums and mocha aromas on the nose. Perfect for lasagna or pepperoni pizza. Decant for an hour to see this baby open up. It will also age nicely in the cellar for a few years, but really, why wait?

Chianti Classico food pairings: meat-based dishes.

Melissa Pulvermacher WSET rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A very traditional example of Chianti Classico. Red fruit, sour cherry, cloves, parsley and cedar strips on the nose. High acid, medium tannin and medium body with sour cherry and cedar wood following through to the palate. This wine definitely needs food. Pairing: pork ragu or anything with a high acid tomato sauce. (Nov 2014)
This big Italian red wine from the heart of the Chianti region offers a tasty glass. The 2011 vintage of the Chianti Classico della Tenuta Capraia is juicy with black fruit flavours. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
