Reviews and Ratings

OTHER: The Decanter World Wine Awards gave this wine a score of 91 points: "80% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 5% Molinara. A powerful perfume of cherry, red berries, oak and chocolate flows from the glass, with a wild game and spicy complexity on the palate. Juicy intensity and lively tannins." (Decanter World Wine Awards 2018). OTHER: (Translated from the Italian) Its superior quality is concentration: powerful fruitiness and spiciness with a majestic texture. It also boasts of an excellent balance between its textural tannicity, its characteristic vein of acidity, glycerin, and the soft pulp of its prime grapes. The winemaking implementation is impeccable: its bouquet has an immaculate neatness, its spices are well measured and clearly defined, its meaty cassis is full-bodied and long-lasting. An excellent wine. Score - 94 (Luca Maroni, lucamaroni.com, Sept. 1, 2017). - 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.
