Vintages Wine Panel: This intriguing new wine from the renowned Tommasi family is built around the classic Valpolicella grape, Corvina, with the lesser-seen indigenous Oseleta variety. The partial drying of the grapes intensifies the flavour and aromas. The wine offers handsomely focused red berry, cherry and cinnamon spice aromas. Fruity, spicy, crisp and round on the palate with gentle tannins and a medium-long, berry-rich finish. My note: Lots of mouth-watering acidity for food here with rich, dark red fruit aromas and some toasty oak. Very savoury and delicious. Different and fascinating. Great for the barbecue.

Corvina food pairings: barbecued ribs, braised lamb.

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.

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.
