Reviews and Ratings

Michelle Williams rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This is an excellent wine for the cost. It opens with the sweetness of cherries coupled with a hint of pepper. These flavors follow on the palate along with a cranberry/strawberry sweetness. However, it is not a sweet wine. The pepper adds a nice balance without making it spicy. This wine is part of the Whole Foods Spring Salute to Wines from Italy, which is what has lead me to purchase it. The grapes are predominately Nero d'Avola. I paired it with spaghetti squash, meatballs, marinara sauce, topped with fresh basil & grated parmesan. The fat of the meatballs and cheese is perfect with the dryness of the wine. A great dinner for sure!Due to the price, approachability and rustic Italian qualities I will definitely buy this wine again.

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.
