Natalie's Score: 89/100

Intriguing purple plums, blueberry pie and violet aromas on the nose. Alicante is a lesser-known red grape grown in Italy, but it's capable of producing full-bodied red wines like this one, full of interesting flavours. Both the skin and pulp or fleshy of the grape are red, which is unusual -- the only Vitis vinifera grape that is so. This wine offers robust aromas of cigar box, blackberries and dark plums. Attractively sour-bitter finish. Something different and new for your pepperoni pizza.

Alicante food pairings: grilled or cured meats, pepperoni pizza.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
