Reviews and Ratings

Karen Anderson reviewed this wine as follows:

As warm and ample as a kiss from an expert lover. Leaves me wanting more everytime. I love the black cherry glow and the garnet colour and it transports me to a shared meal of Bistecca in Florence or wild boar ravioli in Arrezzo. Expensive but worth the splurge kind of treat.

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.
