Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Expressive. Medium ruby colour with a garnet hue and intricate aromas of blackberry, cherry, chocolate, spice and earth. Flavours are engaging with blackberry, light skinned plum, red bell pepper, dried herbs, and some peppery heat at the end. Still young but overall, lovely! Let decant for an hour before enjoying. Pair with herb crusted pork chops, sundried tomatoes and olive pesto pasta and washed rind cheeses.
91 points, tasted Oct. 2017
Fumanelli Squarano (2014) is a Valpolicella Classico from Veneto with ripe, red berries, plum, dried herbs and flowers. Tannins are easy, but decant for one hour prior to serving. The Marchesi Fumanelli family has cultivated grapes and produced wines from their estate for 28 generations, dating back to 1470. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
