Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ruby in colour, this complex wine has flavours of blueberry, red cherry, raspberry, black pepper, clove, forest floor, leather, cedar, coffee, and mint, with a chalk minerality.
This rich wine coats the palate with its rich fruit and tannin structure on the long, warming finish.
Drink now or cellar for 2-3 years to allow the tannins to soften.
Pair with charcuterie, pizza, pasta, and red meats from the grill.
Date tasted: April 2014.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicious! Chianti lovers rejoice! Medium ruby colour and developing aromas of strawberry, cherry, plum, blueberry, cloves, coffee, pepper, cedar, eucalyptus, vanilla. This wine packs power with each sip. Grainy tannic mouthfeel cherry aroma changes to sour cherry as well as strawberry compote, leather, black pepper, dust,garrigue, chalky minerality. This wine has enough fruit, tannin and acidity to age further(2-3 yrs) but can be enjoyed now. Lingering warm fruit driven finish. XD Decanting suggested.
Roasted lamb, Prime rib, salty cheeses
Tasted April 2014
Salty cheeses,

Natalie's Review

Toscolo Riserva Chianti Classico 2007, D.O.C.G., Tuscany, Italy: Lovely! Mocha but not too much, just a warming edge along with fleshy black plum. Full-bodied and almost smooth (nothing that 2 hours of decanting can't solve). Layered and delicious. Drink: 2013-2018. 69369 13% XD 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 91/100.

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.
