Enjoy this turbo-charged version of Valpolicella. This well-made Ripasso is deep ruby in colour with aromas of black cherry, plum, dark chocolate, tar and dried spices that really draw you. It’s dry, medium full bodied with ripe, rich fruit balanced by moderate acidity and tannins. Great balance here with a memorable dark-chocolate finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
