Natalie's Score: 88/100
This is the 2015 vintage from the Tuscany wine region, Barone Ricasoli Rocca Guicciarda Riserva is a full-bodied Chianti Classico. Lot of ripe dark fruit with dried herbs and spicy chocolate flavours on the palate. Lots of mouth-watering acidity as well. A smooth classic Chianti with aromas of dark fruit, sun-dried tomato and dried herbs. Mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes from pasta in tomato sauce to spicy sausages. This wine is a blend of mostly Sangiovese grapes, with a little Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Finishes with baking spices, dried herbs. Pair with game meats, Italian sausage or meats sauces. Pair with a rich tomato sauce and sausage casserole. Decant for two hours prior to serving.
Chianti Classico food pairings: stuffed roasted turkey, steak topped pizza, pasta in tomato sauce, breaded veal cutlets.
Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Powerful stuff from Ricasoli. Big, fleshy and ripe, with blackberry, black plum and black cherry notes, wrapped around a core of fresh and dried herb, anise seed, chocolate and a hint of cedar, rather than the other way around. Intensely fascinating, and its inverted nature only stands to change dramatically over the next decade. 92 Points.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Vibrant sour cherry accented by oak spice, smoke, and herbs. Structured tannins, firm acidity, and good body lend ageworthiness. Elements are integrated and balanced, though a few years away from the apogee of development. But do not let that dissuade you from enjoying this elegant red sooner with braised veal and mushrooms or Ragu al Chingiale.
