More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This wine might feel lost on you unless you get an understanding for the terroir of the area. Dried black cherry, oak, spice, scorched earth and minerals, and an almost tarry quality. I'm 89 on this. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Jennifer Hart rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of cherry, leather and hint of licorice spice. On the full side of medium bodied with a solid tannic grip and very good balance
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Terredora Aglianico is medium bodied, bit bretty and with FRUITY to integrated notes of strawberry, cherry and oak. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 to 60 min) and the finish is medium to long and smooth. It should be laid down for couple of years to come together and should last till the end of this decade. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87.5 pts. Tasted Apr/11.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
