Reviews and Ratings

Founded in 1960, Cantina Tollo was awarded “Producer of the Year” honours at the 2010 Mundus Vini International Wine Awards. This Montepulciano d’Abruzzo offers up lovely layered aromas of dark fruit and cinnamon. The palate is dry and complex with ripe berry, mineral and dark fruit notes accented by more spice, fine tannins and a long, dry finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
