Natalie's Score: 87/100

A youthful Chianti Classico awarded DOC designation in 1716, though wines have been made there since the 15th century. Produced from 100% Sangiovese wine grapes. Bright and rich with cherry liqueur, raspberry, spicy and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm on this food-friendly red made for a meaty lasagne or pasta dish.

Chianti Classico food pairings: hearty stews, fricassee chicken, slow-cooked brisket.

Cafaggio 2015 Chianti Classico is produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, mouth filling and vibrant with bright cherry, raspberry and savoury spice flavours. Still quite youthful with fine, firm tannins. Drink now and for the next three years. - 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.

    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.
