Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Big, juicy and bold. Complex and layered with blackberry, strawberry, aged leather, savoury herb and subtle baking spices. Long finish with persistence of blackberry and leather. Full bodied, high acidity, medium plus tannins. Mouthwatering and chewy mouthfeel. Pairs well with tomato based pasta dishes and tasted additional Italian favourites. Decanted 2015 vintage 2h. Tasted Jan 2018. 92 points.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Plump blueberry aromas are found in this Chianti Classico as well as cocoa and hints of leather and truffle. It has tart blackberry and dark berry flavours, a certain meaty quality, and the tannins are medium and well incorporated with the flavours and acidity of the wine.

Tasted November 2017
Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A fairly traditional Chianti Classico offering cherry and forest floor aromas. Crisp acids with noted tannins. Finish is fully dry, dryer even than typical for Chianti Classico.
Ricasoli Brolio (2015) is a full-bodied Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region made from Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes. Pair with an herb-rubbed bavette steak. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
