Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous fragrant bouquet with dried fruit, clove, smoked bacon, sous bois, and graphite on the nose. Beautifully balanced, it’s elegant with a remarkably supple texture. The palate shows layers of dark fruit, figs, plum, and spice with a long and inviting finish. An exceptional wine with terrific structure making it ideally suited for enjoyment now and will cellar beautifully over the next 5+ years. Enjoy with Leitao (suckling pig), Espetada (grilled beef kebabs), or Chourico (smoked sausage), to name a few top picks. A buy by the case wine that offers exceptional value! Look for it in the October 14 2017 Vintages release at LCBO. Tasted July 2017. 92+ points. Matt Steeves – www.quercusvino.ca
From the Dão wine region in Portugal, Altivo (2015) is fragrant with dried fig, plum and savoury spice on the palate. This is a perfect wine for grilled fare like pork sausages, or pork and lamb chops. - 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.
