Reviews and Ratings

Taliano Michele Ad Altiora (2012) is a Barbaresco from the Piedmont wine region. The wine is fragrant with rose petal, violets and red berries.
"Ad Altiora" translates to "even higher" meaning, aiming higher. This wine is made with 100% Nebbiolo red wine grapes with vines in calcareous soils, 300 metres above sea level in the Piedmont wine region. The wine was aged in oak for 24 months and 12 months in bottle prior to its release. On the palate, the wine is structured, balanced with tart cherry, ripe red berries and dried herbs. Very nice; very quaffable. Drink now or cellar for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
