Reviews and Ratings

This is a lovely Italian red from the Bolgheri D.O.C. The wine is mostly a Cabernet Sauvignon with some Cabernet Franc. The grapes for this wine were macerated and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for about 14 days and aged in oak barrels for 10 months. There is good structure and balance to the wine with ripe, blackberries and savoury herbs on the nose and palate. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
