Reviews and Ratings

A clean, crisp and lemony Gavi Di Gavi from the Piedmont wine region produced from 100% Cortese white wine grapes. Floral with anise aromas, bright, fresh apple and lemon flavours on the palate. Enjoy now in all of its freshness with grilled shellfish dishes. MINE: From the Marchesi di Barolo, a clean, crisp zesty Gavi (2017) with rich, ripe yellow apple, fresh pear, licorice flavours and a vibrant lemon juice acidity on the palate. Made from the Cortese wine grape grown in the township of Gavi. Pair with fresh seafood or vegetarian dishes. Marchesi di Barolo winery has been family-run for more than two centuries and five generations ago. Chill and enjoy now. OTHER: Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Highly aromatic floral, fruity nose. Nicely balanced acidity and a hit of salinity make this juicy and refreshing. Clean and crisp. Try it with spicy, creamy pasta. Tasted May 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com. OTHER: Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Bright aromas of peach, peach blossom, and citrus. Ripe and vibrant aromas and flavours with a soft, round mouthfeel. Mouth-watering acidity, so crisp and fresh. Finish brings in some stone and minerality. Dry and pleasant, pair with fresh shellfish, sushi, or roasted chicken. OTHER: Marchesi di Barolo has been a major contributor to successful dining for over five generations. The wines for Gavi di Gavi are made from the Cortese grape and must come from the township of Gavi itself. They tend to have more heft and impact than wines from the larger Gavi DOCG. Expect a floral, bright wine with juicy apple, lemon and underlying mineral. Perfect for sipping or for seafood dishes (Vintages Panel, updated). - 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.
