A full-bodied, mouth-watering red with aromas of dark red fruit, smoke and dried herbs. Firm tannins. Decant 2 hours. Will cellar well. Pair with game dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Worthy holiday red right here! Aromas show mild cranberry, candied cherry, earthy underbrush, and spice notes. The plate shows high grippy tannins, a balanced acidity, and lovely concentrated fruit. The finish is long and minty. Enjoy pairing with braised beef and polenta. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
This 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is sweet cherries, plushy plum, sweet spice and citrus peel. Drinking great now and for the next 10 years. - 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.
