Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Mmmmm, what a yummy minty anise finish! The nose is so inviting, showing ripe & stewed red berry fruit, dark plums, chocolate leather, and baking spice (nutmeg & all spice). The palate is a bold repeat of flavours from those glorious aromas of cooked berry, vanilla and intense eucalyptus/mint notes. Acidity, tannins, body, alcohol integration and fruit concentration show a harmonious balance and complexity on the palate. Overall, this a fine expression of Brunello. Pair with braised beef, bison tenderloin... etc. Enjoy now to 2026. Tasted May 2016. @sommsosa @bespoketastings
This robust Italian red wine is made for the long haul, cellar now and enjoy later. Lots of racy acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
