A solid red with full-bodied flavor and excellent structure. Notes of black cherry, beetroot and raspberry. A warm-hearted wine that bottles a little Tuscan sun. Aged for a minimum of two years in oak. Ruby red.

Sangiovese food pairings: salami toscana, grilled cheese sandwich, turkey scallopini, truffles.

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.
