Natalie's Score: 89/100

Great price point on this smoky 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot red wine blend. Medium-plus-bodied with ripe cherry, red berry savoury herb and spice flavours on the palate, structured and well-balance with great acidity for food. Pair with charcuterie and aged cheeses.

Food pairings: roast quail stuffed with wild mushroom, slow-cooked beef short ribs in red wine sauce, gourmet burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Leonardo Rosso 2016 is fantastic value under $15. This full-bodied Italian red from the Tuscany wine region is smoky with ripe red berry fruit, savoury spice flavours on the palate and made for rich meaty dishes, chops and grilled game sausage. Structured with mouth-watering acidity, enjoy it now. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
