Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Tenuta Di Castiglioni has intense aromas of toasted oak, vanilla, cherry and blackberry on the nose and earth, cherry, oak, coconut and vanilla on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, chewy, refined tannins (decant for 1 hour) and a long, wood dominated finish. This is a sipper, though can be drunk with dominant foods; drink 2015-2019. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - good value wine and hence recommended. Tasted May/13.

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.
