Reviews and Ratings

Molly Amoli Shinhat reviewed this wine as follows:

In the glass, it's a dark ruby. A nose heady with violets, cedar and an incense note; on the palate, it's dark fruit, with earth, cedar, and a wood note. In a medium-body, it has high acidity and medium plus tannin.

At 12.5% a.b.v. and dry at 8 g/l residual sugar, it's a great sipper! Certified organic by the EU - the starred leaves symbol - a very high standard, btw; it's also certified Vegan by the ICEA, a 25-year-old non-profit Italian consortium.

One-hundred percent Montepulciano from Abruzzo, the vineyards are located in Abruzzo's national park. The park continues to play a pivotal role in the restoration of the previously endangered Apennine wolf and its habitat.

It's wine grown in wild nature.

Pairs with roasted vegetables, hearty soups, and beef bolognese.

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.

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.
