Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Alex: Dense, ripe style of Tuscan cabernet sauvignon. Bouquet of cassis and raspberry tones, candied orange, clove and vanilla with mint and spice box. Palate showing mature fruit, some prune, rich and fruit driven with fine flavor punch, sinewy tannin and some heat on the finish. Ready to drink now, and seems to me that further aging will cause the alcohol to knock the wine out of balance. Tasty, interesting drop for ~$20. 87 pts
The 2006 vintage of the Cortaccio is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes is a full-bodied Italian red wine. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
