Reviews and Ratings

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied red, full of berry and spice overtones and a hint of pepper. Smooth and well-balanced. Paired well with barbecued butterflied lamb roast that had been marinated in garlic and Dijon mustard.
Alan Dunne rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

2011 vintage on sale. Reg 11.95
James Belardo rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Cusumano is one of Sicily's most popular wine exports and for good reason. Their Syrah is an example of a very pleasant tasting inexpensive wine. It has qualities that make it great everyday wine even if it's not one their premiere products. It's also wonderful for cooking since it's full-bodied and flavorful. If it weren't for my love for the Nero D'Avola grape, this Syrah would find it's way to my glass much more often!

pasta arrabiata, grilled & roasted meats, BBQ favourites, antipasto, grilled vegetables and cheeses.

Spicy berry aromas. Medium to full bodied wine displaying flavours of berries, cassis & spice.

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.
