Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From the gently rolling Tuscan hills of Val di Pesa, cooled by the breezes from the Tyrrhenian Sea, comes this intensely fruity and smooth blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Medium in body with deep ruby red hues and aromas and flavours of wild berries and delicate floral scents. Supple and plush of the palate with fine tannins and well balanced acidity. Closes in a long, wood-toned finish. Fantastic match with red meat pasta sauces and matured cheeses. Tasted October 2016/89. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com.

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.
