Natalie's Score: 88/100

Mocha, earth, dust and smoky oak on the nose. Full-bodied Italian red wine with tart black cherries, leather, earth and toasty oak on the palate. I prefer the 2012, 2010 and 2009 vintages, but this is solid.

Chianti Classico food pairings: linguini marinara, slow-braised lamb shanks with tomato and garlic, tomato garlic and clam sauce over penne.

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.
