Reviews and Ratings

Marcia J. Hamm rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

From the famed Il Palagio estate in Tuscany, many may not know the estate name, but they would certainly know the proprietors~ Sting and Trudie Styler. With 4 wines currently in the market from their winery, When We Dance is part of the Chianto Classico designation, which therefore means there must be at least 80% Sangiovese in the blend. This wine goes above and beyond that with 95% Sangiovese and 5% blend of Colorino and Canaiolo. Love the lightness and freshness of this wine! Sweet aromas of sour cherries, floral notes of iris and hints of earth, the tannins are light with refreshing acidity and further flavours of sour cherries, red currants, sweet tobacco, hints of black liquorice. and earth. A perfect wine for all those traditional Tuscan recipes!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
