Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A Chianti Classico from Tuscany, Italy, made from a selection of Sangiovese grapes. Typical Chianti with both fruity and spicy elements, vanilla and allspice. Dry, smooth, mouth-watering; great with tomato-based pasta dishes.
Tasted July 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Sweet and earthy. Dominant notes include dried plums, cherry, forest floor, baking spice and savoury herbs. This Chianti is dry with moderate (still grippy) tannins, high glorious acidity, and a long savoury finish. Pair with braised beef tacos. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Poggio Teo (2010) is produced by the Piccini Family Estate, and is a solid example of a mature, well-aged Chianti Classico. The wine is made from a selection of Sangiovese grapes and is smoked cherry and mocha on the nose with same on palate with a lingering savoury-spice finish. This winery is named for the hillock on which it sits. - 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.
