Natalie scored this wine: 90/100

Medium ruby coloured Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, with soft medium plus tannins, medium plus acidity, medium body, dry and medium alcohol. A pronounced aroma with smoky and savoury notes, ripe dark cherry and red and black currants and vanilla. Aromas repeat on palate. Pleasant on it's own or with tomato based dishes.

A delicious young Super Tuscan; blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine is medium ruby, dry, medium - body, medium alcohol and medium acidity and tannin. The wine has a pronounced fruity aroma, featuring sour cherries and red fruit, particularly currants and a hint of pot-pourri. Aromas are repeated on the palate. A very pleasant wine to drink on its own; will not disappoint you.

Memorable Wine

Well maybe the one above, or perhaps the Baby Duck I had behind the high school portable. Ouch!


First Wine

My first wine was a brunello, which I described in my first book. Very sensual: got me into wine!


Unusual Wine Experience

When I went shark diving in South Africa, then paired wine with seafood for my new book Unquenchable.


Current Fav Wine

Pinot Noir, now, then and always!
