Reviews and Ratings

Castello Di Querceto Il Picchio Gran Selezione 2013 is a robust and juicy Chianti Classico with a 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino red wine blend from the Tuscany wine region. Elegant with lots of dark cherry, dark berry, light herbs and savoury spice flavours, tannins are fine and this wine is drinking great now. Pair with your best meaty past and rich tomato sauce dish. - 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.
