Reviews and Ratings

A rustic and full-bodied Italian red wine with cherry liqueur nose, and deep, dark concentration of flavour on the palate. Powerful dark fruit flavours follow through on the finish. The 2012 vintage is robust with dark fruit and toasty oak. Good acidity and finish. Pair with grilled meats. MINE: From Italy's Basilicata wine region, D'Angelo (2012) is a rustic, full bodied red made with the Aglianico (del Vulture) red wine grape. Look for cherry liqueur ad cola flavours on this hardy red that is perfect pairing to rich meat or vegetarian stews. Drink now and for the next five years. OTHER: Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: What a treat! Deep ruby colour with predominately secondary aromas. Stewed cherries, tobacco, leather, salty herbs, spinach, fennel and anise. Loads of smoke too! Flavours are abundant with tart grippy cherry, minerals, peach skins, anise and fresh tobacco. Also a touch of mushroom earthiness. Medium plus acidity, tannins body with a medium finish. This went perfectly with flank steak, cremini mushrooms and marinade reduction. Delicious! OTHER: I love the crushed blue fruit on offer here, such as blueberries and bilberries, in addition to the lavender and dried-tobacco undertones. Full body, chewy tannins and a blackberry-soaked finish. Drink in 2020. Score - 91 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Oct. 22, 2018). - 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.
