Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An impressive dry Pinot Grigio from Italy's northern most province and wine making region, Alto Adige, which borders Switzerland and Austria. Renowned for its snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows, and premium Pinot Grigio, this region has been producing wine since the beginning of time, making it one of the oldest wine growing regions in the world.

The 2016 Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio is a beautiful pale straw colour with a light gold hue. The nose displays crisp yellow apple, floral blossoms, minerality, and freshly baked pie crust. The palate is creamy but with a very refreshing finish that delivers layers of ripe orchard fruits with mouthwatering minerality. A silky smooth texture but with a lively crispness making it very clean and refreshing. A terrific wine to enjoy with creamy salads, roasted poultry, seafood, or simply enjoy whilst reflecting after a big day. Great value. Tasted October 2017. 88-89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
From the Alto Adige Trentino Luna Nuda (2016 ) Pinot Grigio Vigneti delle Dolomiti is a fresh, crisp and mouth-watering Pinot Grigio. Made from 100% Pinot Grigio is youthful and exhibiting purity of fruit. The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tank thereby retaining fruit freshness and flavours and had four-months of aging on the fine lees in concrete vats prior to bottling. Pair with poached whitefish or pasta Primavera. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
