Reviews and Ratings

From the Tuscany wine region, Rocca Guicciarda 2016 is a well-priced Chianti Classico Riserva, produced from mostly this region's flagship grape, Sangiovese grapes, with a smattering of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Vibrant and juicy with dark cherry, savoury herbs and amazing acidity for food finishing long with baking spice, dried herbs flavours on the palate. Decant two hours prior to pouring with a Bistecca or Nonna's meaty lasagne, or cellar for three years to bring out its best. - 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.
