Reviews and Ratings

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

The 2011 Bersano Costalunga Barbera D'asti has appealing red currant, raspberry, stems and lifted woody/oaky and vanilla notes. It is a medium bodied, perceivably dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity, subtle tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. It is food and sipping friendly; drink now to 2017. My impression: quite NICE, 88 pts – recommended for its value. Tasted Nov/13.

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

Beautiful deep ruby colour. Aromas of currant, raspberry and a bit of spice. More berry aromas come through as the wine opens up. Similar flavours on the palate with a hint of oak. Medium body and finish. Delicious paired with beef ribs and even used some in the braising liquid. A really good value wine!

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.
