Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

In a twist on Veneto's penchant for drying grapes, the grapes for this red are late harvested after partially drying on the vine. It has a beautiful nose of mushroom, warm hay and dried fruit reminiscent of an Amarone. Fruit on the palate is fairly pronounced and slightly candied. Lots going on here for the money. Good value. Pair with eggplant parmigiana or lasagna. Tasted January 2020 . www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A Cabernet/Merlot blend from northern Italy, the wine opens with red fruit aromas and leads to a jammy fruit, candied, blk liquorice palate. Light acidity, medium tannins and a medium spicy finish. Serve with red meats and soft or aged cheeses.
From the Veneto wine region, Ca' Del Sette Appassionante 2016 is a late-harvest, full-bodied Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon red wine blend produced with partially dried wine grapes giving it more body, concentration of fruit flavours. Juicy and concentrated with dark berry and plum compote, dried fruit, dark chocolate, savoury herb and sweet spicy flavours on the palate. Excellent value. Pair with Osso Bucco. - 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.
