Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Generous fruit with an almost jammy palate coupled with flavors of mint, smoke, vanilla, plum, cocoa, and a hint of green bell pepper. Lengthy smoke on the finish. Great value wine at just under $14. Enjoy with a plate of homemade pasta in a tomato sauce with sausage and eggplant. Tasted October 2017.
12 E Mezzo (2015) is a Primitivo Del Salento from the Puglia wine region. 12 E Mezzo is a new brand for the Varvaglione family with a more modern approach to wine and created by Marzia, Angelo and Francesca, the 3 “under 30” children of the Varvaglione family. Varvaglione Vigne & Vini has been producing wine since 1921. The company has 1,500 hectares cultivated by the local farmers that have been affiliated to Vigne & Vini for over 30 years. Look for ripe dark berry flavours all wrapped up in smoke and spice on this well-priced red. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
