Natalie's Score: 90/100

Love the black pepper juiciness of this red! Fleshy black cherries with some tart blackberries mingled in. Absolutely delicious! The grapes for this wine dried for a month, in the traditional method. This gives incredible intensity and depth to the wine. The traditional Corvina and Oseleta grapes are used in the blend. A balancing acidity is perfect and makes this robust red even more versatile with a variety of hearty meat dishes.

Food pairings: pasta, light meat dishes, light or hard cheese, game.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Reviews and Ratings

A blend of Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta and Merlot, the Arele is named for the traditional wooden trays that were used to partially dry grapes selected to make appassimento wines. An aromatic nose of cherry and red fruits, with tar, leather, nettle, dried leaf and plum adding depth. Delicious, complex and long. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Feb. 2013

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.
