Tom rated this wine as 94/100
Nina rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine was made by traditional method by drying grapes for month.
That gives wine complex and pleasant taste and aromas. Medium body, good balance of acidity, light tannin, and a little smoky.
Very nice wine. Good with pasta, light meat dishes, light cheese.
The wine is made with the traditional Corvina and the still-rare (recently resurrected from extinction) Oseleta grapes. Made from grapes dried for about one month, this wine has intriguing aromas of sun-dried tomatoes, sweet black cherry, vanilla bean, tar and smoke. Dry with lots of partially dried fruit flavours, fine tannins and a lifting acidity for freshness to complete the package. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

  Best Books of the Year

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.
