Natalie's Score: 90/100

A robust Tuscany Chianti Classico region produced from 100% Sangiovese. Love the fragrant dark cherry, smoky and spicy nose on this toothsome red. Juicy with dark cherry, dried berry, meaty, spicy and mineral flavours vibrant on the palate. Food-friendly, pair with spaghetti and meatballs.

Chianti Classico food pairings: veal piccata, meaty pasta and rich tomato sauce, sausage cassoulet.
