A lovely Chianti Classico with bright black cherry, red berry, cedar spice, savoury herbs all wrapped up in a whiff of smoke. Nicely done and so easy to enjoy. Pair with a vegetarian thin crust pizza and sun-dried tomatoes.

Chianti Classico food pairings: meat lovers pizza, pasta in tomato sauce, breaded veal cutlets, cobb salad.

Reviews and Ratings

Santa Margherita 2016 Chianti Classico is vibrant with bright cherry, pomegranate, blackberry and cedar spice flavours on the palate wrapped up in a whiff of smoky, toasty oak. Love the earthy violets, dark cherry and fine herb flavours on the palate and so easy to enjoy. Pair with a meaty lasagne dish. - 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.
