Reviews and Ratings

OTHER: (Translated from the Italian) Sensations: its grapes are a force of nature: a concentration of pigments, aromas and flavors communicating its total extractive richness to the eye. A composite and expressive sensory intensity, an incredible insistence and persistence of aroma. Its persuasive taste features supreme roundness and smoothness, with a highly dense tannin not revealing an aggressive, bitter strength. Enlivened by the acidity of its profile, the soft parts of the fruit soften and balance its potency to the taste by enveloping it. And it is also due to impeccable and reverential wine-making techniques that the intrinsic wealth of its aromas is highlighted by the novelty and fruitiness of the grapes with prime non-oxidized strength. An archetypal wine, with its supreme spicy blackberry: a combination of and payoff from the perfect quality of its grapes, and the integrity of its wine-making techniques. The best Albarossa ever, an archetype of reference of the highest analytical and sensorial value for this variety of wines.

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.
