Reviews and Ratings

Barry rated this wine as 95/100
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

If you have any of this in your cellar, dip into it. A very supple, generous Chianti Classico featuring black cherry, blueberry, some briars, and a hint of black licorice. This wine is all finesse. Best on its own. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An excellent Chianti Classico Riserva. If you drink it in 2012, decant in for 2 hours. I tried it in two consecutive days - the second day is significantly better - it added body and complexity. I don't find it a typical Chianti. It's full body. Smooth. Clean. pure. Velvety. More interesting on the palate than on the nose.

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.
