Reviews and Ratings

The bouquet is elegant, with berry fruit mingled with sandalwood spice and some cedar, and also brambly acidity. Nice balance, and very young. On the palate it’s medium bodied, with bright berry fruit supported by clean brambly acidity and tannins that are a bit splintery, and flow into a clean rather brambly finish. It’s not a wine to drink by the glass far from the table, but will work very well with foods, and will also be nice with traditional Puglian vegetarian foods. Quite versatile, in a food pairing key. Will also age nicely, becoming silky with time. Score: 2 (out of 3) Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review

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.

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.
