Reviews and Ratings

Samer Forzley rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose: Cherry, smoke, dusty, and earthy.
Naste of cherry, strawberry, a bit of spice.
Low acid, mid tannin, mid-short finish with cherry and tobacco finish.
Have it with a pizza.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

There's lots of cherry, red plum, mushroom, herb, forest floor, leather, hung meat, and a hit of smoke on this. 89 Points.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Rustic and smooth Chianti, with plenty of charm. Built around Sangiovese, this wine is a stylish wine to give as a gift or to keep for a specisl dinner.
Typical ruby-garnet colour. Not tremendously dark.
It is quite restrained, but opens slowly. Lots of autumn leaves, cocoa powder, dried fennel, leather, sour cherries, and red plum.
The flavours are long and pure. Juicy, actually. Pomegranate, cherry, raspberry, and a bit more of the dried herb and leather on the back end.
A great pairing for Tuscan reds is rabbit. A nice stew of rabbit with parsnip would be fantastic.
Dievole 2014 is a great value Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region. Lots of dark cherry, earthy violets, dark chocolate, dried tobacco leaf and savoury spice flavours on the palate, finishing long with good acidity and concentration of fruit. Drink now and pair with spaghetti and a rich tomato and meat sauce. - 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.
