Reviews and Ratings

Marcia J. Hamm rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This is quintessential Barbera with dark colour, high acid and medium tannins but perfectly in balance! Wines from Asti offer higher acidity and tannins, while those from Alba are more fleshy and round. This one (from Asti) and the high acidity, makes this a very food friendly wine, or quaffable on its own. Red cherries, earth and cigar box aromas match with the palate along with a spicy finish. This is a yummy wine with great structure and texture! $26 on the shelf here in Alberta!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
