Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Loads of ripe strawberry fruit flavors along with soft tannin, and an off dry finish make this "Italian Zinfandel" easy to enjoy. Exceptionally good value. Perfect with lasagne and caesar salad. Drink while young and fruity, now through 2014. Tasted Dec 2013.
Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

This Primitivo from Puglia has wonderful dark fruit aromas. On the nose and palate I detected sweet dark berries as well as fresh figs and dark chocolate. It's a dry wine with medium to full body with low tannin (typical of Zinfandel), well balanced and an excellent price. I served it with veal stew...which was a hit with my friends.

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.
