Natalie's Score: 89/100

Great price point on this smoky, juicy Sangiovese and Merlot red wine blend from the Tuscany wine region. Mouth-watering with ripe red berry, meaty, baking and well-integrated oak spice flavours on the palate. Pair with grilled beef long ribs.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Leonardo 2018 is Sangiovese-driven red wine with some Merlot blended in for added structure. Great value under $15 on this smoky, medium-plus-bodied red wine with great acidity for food. Look for smoky ripe red berry fruit, dark plum, fine herb and savoury spice flavours on the palate. Pair with grilled ribs. - 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.
