Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bright garnet red with fragrant cherry, vanilla and a mouth-watering fruity palate. Made for food!
Tasted Jan. 2017
Barone Ricasoli's Castello Di Brolio Gran Selezione (2013) is a Chianti Classico made from Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the estate's vineyards. The vineyards are 250 to 450 metres above sea level, grapes enjoy south to southwest exposure to slowly, evenly and fully ripen wine grapes. Look for bright red plum, raspberry and mocha flavours from the medium-bodied Chianti Classico. - 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.
