Reviews and Ratings

Anthony Hillman - WSET ADV rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A medium to full body food loving Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Broody aromas of dark cherry and oak, with hints of smoke and tea. Chalky integrated tannins support juicy fruit flavours of black cherry and blackberry and some peppery spiciness. Moderate finish.

Good on its own, and comes further alive paired with food such as pasta with rich meat sauces, pizza topped with pancetta, mushrooms, and strong cheeses, or with well seasoned grilled meats.

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.
