Natalie's Score: 90/100

Loaded with toasty, charry oak. Black fruit and smoke underneath this full-bodied bruiser. Decant 2 hours. Drink it with prime rib.

Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

It's no secret amongst my wine friends that I love Amarone. The dark richness of sundried grapes makes my mouth water. This Amarone delivers it all. Deep and smooth. Plush dark fruit, prunes, raisin, oak, leather and dupicated on the palate. This wine needs food. Roasted meats, grilled burgers, pasta with bison meat sauce. Salty cheeses would also stand up to this wine. Stilton perhaps? Let me know. Decanting only made it better!
International Trophy Winner for Best Red Varietal Over £10 at the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards. Charcoal nose over a spicy, savoury palate with good depth of black fruit. Hints of sour cherry, liqueur red fruit and dark tobacco touched with chocolate on a fruity, polished style with good freshness. Score: 5 (out of 5). Source: Decanter World Wine Awards, 2012

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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

  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.
