James Belardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

My first impressions of the Jasci & Marchesani Nerubè Riserva Montepulciano D'abruzzo were "‘whoa’ is that chocolate?" Then flavors of berries hit my palate and I was pleasantly surprised. I did not expect this level of sophistication from a wine at this price point - period. This wine has made it close to the top of my go-to list.

I'd say that the best pairing for this lovely wine would be foods that are spicy and slightly bitter such as pasta dishes like Cavatelli with Rapini and Spicy Sausage or a good Putanesca with olives and chilies. It would also make a nice compliment to stuffed peppers or cabbage rolls.

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.
