Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 5% Canaiolo, and 5% Colorino from the Colli Senesi subregion of Chianti. Like many of the world's fine wines, Palagetto's Chianti is hand harvested, fermented in concrete tanks, and aged in large oak barrels. The result is a very fragrant and complex aromatic bouquet with cherries, plum, leather, tobacco, mocha, and a touch of earth. The palate is extra dry with delicate tannins, fresh acidity, and a rustic profile that would be terrific to complement charcoal grilled Bistecca alla Fiorentina served with lemon wedges and cannellini beans. Enjoy over the next few years. Tasted September 2017. 88 points. Good value! Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

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.
