rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Taut, structured, a serious wine defined by blackberry fruit, spice, oak, and a hint of pepper. I'm 91 on this. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Torre del Falco is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Nero di Troia. This is another entry-level wine; it’s deep pigeon blood ruby with cherry rim, and has a direct, fairly rich bouquet with jammy red berry fruit supported by some spice and hints of caramel from the grapes (no wood). On the palate it’s medium bodied, with fairly rich dry cherry fruit supported by underbrush and moderate acidity, while there is also considerable graphite bitterness in the tannins that’s typical of Nero di Troia, and provides both backbone and depth. Direct, up front, and will drink nicely. A wine that doesn’t demand attention, but rather supports what it’s served with, and will go quickly. Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review

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.
