Reviews and Ratings

Carpineto farnito 2012 is a full-bodied, savoury and meaty Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tuscany wine region. This wine is inky dark with rich black fruit, blackberry flavours on the palate on this vintage from a hot year in Tuscany. Drink now and for the next three years. Pair with a rosemary and garlic roast of pork. - 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.
