A robust, earthy, smoky Chianti Classico Riserva with black cherry compote, sweet baking spice, Madagascar vanilla and meaty flavours on the palate. Drink or hold. Pair with an equally meaty pasta and zesty tomato sauce dish.

Chianti Classico food pairings: Margherita pizza, vegetarian lasagna, cannelloni with three cheeses.

From the Tuscany wine region, Antinori Badia A Passignano 2016 Chianti Classico is a big, bold and mouth-watering Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, intense and mouth-filling with dark tart cherry, earthy mushrooms, savour herbs and cedar brush flavours, mouth-watering on the palate, firm tannins and a long dark ripe cherry finish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
