Natalie's Score: 87/100

Solid Italian red wine for the money. Rich, dark and bursting with black fruit flavour and mocha and dark chocolate from oak aging. Supple and full-bodied and ready to go now. Crack one open on the next movie night. Pair with roast beef or meat lasagna.

Food pairings: braised pork shoulder in Chianti sauce, slow-roasted lamb shank.

Reviews and Ratings

Jacqueline Cochrane rated this wine as 90/100
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Wow, what a steal for under $15. Very expressive wine, with dried fruit, smoke, and spice on the nose. Repeat on the palate. Medium bodied and dry, this is a great value priced wine to enjoy with pasta dishes. Tasted April 2015. 88+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
An amazing Italian red wine for the money! Alessio Di Majo Norante established this Italian winery 1968, and now the estate has a reputation for being one of the best in the Molise region, the country's smallest wine growing district. Pair the 2013 vintage of their Sangiovese with a rare steak. - 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.
