John Szabo, MS

A solid vintage for this stock-standard Chianti Classico, with plummy fruit and enough firm dusty tannin to keep it in the Tuscan idiom. For current enjoyment or short-term hold. Tasted June 2015. Value Rating: **
Erica Klein rated this wine as 100/100
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Robust ripe red cherry, tart cranberry and a eucalyptus minty heat on the aromas and palate. Tannins are on the "grippier" side for a Chianti Classico but well balanced with a luscious acidity. I am definitely buying more this wine. What to pair? Pizza!
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Arômes intenses de fruits rouges, surtout le cassis rouge et les framboises qui sont amplifiées par des touches légcres de vanille et des sensations de café. Ce vin corsé est agréablement durable avec des tannins doux et sucrés.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Intense red fruit aromas, especially redcurrants and raspberries, are amplified by light hints of vanilla and coffee sensations. This full-bodied wine is pleasantly lingering with soft, sweet tannins.

Natalie's Review

Peppoli Antinori Chianti Classico 2011, Tuscany D.O.C.G., Italy: A smooth, supple medium- to full-bodied red wine with mouth-watering acidity and tart cherry flavours with some earthy notes. This wine needs food like pasta in tomato sauce or spicy Italian sausages -- anything with some acidity and zing itself. Drink: 2013-2016. 606541 13% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 87/100.

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.
