Reviews and Ratings

Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Multilayered black fruit aromas reminiscent cassis, prunes and black cherry. In addition, pleasant roasted herbs aromas that brings to mind licorice and spearmint. In the mouth, full body, racy and tightly knit. Long but austere afterstate redolent of new oak. Shows lots of promise but needs between 10-15 to fully reveal itself
Produced by Bolgheri, this is no second-rate wine though: it gets the same careful attention that the flagship does, both in the vineyard and the winery. The 2012 vintage offers aromas of big, black smoky fruit with layers of full-bodied texture. Superb structure and balance. Terrific cellar keeper. Try it with rack of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
