Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 75/100 with the following review:

Priya: Ick. Why do I have to suffer? I’ll say this – it has a nice rusty color but that’s where my good comments end. Kinda salty, almost watered down tasting…I just can’t find anything to like! 70 pts

Alex: Alcohol jumps out on nose, hint of caramel and fresh flowers, grand marnier, cherry liqueur. Not much on palate, quite convoluted; and overtly smooth texture is most of what’s there for me. Below average. 79 pts
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Deep red color, with a garnet hue. The aromas are very complex, with hints of plum jam, tobacco, and a note of licorice. Characterized by a powerful but soft structure, on the palate it is full and harmonious, with a very persistent finish. A Brunello di Montalcino ideal for a long aging.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur rouge foncé avec une teinte grenat. Les arômes sont trcs complexes avec des soupçons de confiture aux prunes, de tabac et une touche de réglisse. Marqué par une structure r la fois puissante et douce, son palais est complet et harmonieux

The 2009 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is made from the Sangiovese grape and the wine was aged 2 years of 50% botte grande and 50% French oak barriques. - 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.
