Reviews and Ratings

Lesley Quinn - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Brunello is a beautiful combination of what you want/expect from an Old World wine and a New World wine. The nose is all fruit and bright red cherries like New World wines but on the palate this Brunello is all Old World with notes of earth, smoke and a fantastic richness. Italian wines are easy to pair with because Italian food was made to match their wines, my favourite is Margherita Pizza. If you are going to buy a Sangiovese spend a little extra and get a Brunello, you won't regret it!

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.
