Reviews and Ratings

Gambero Rosso Italian Wines awarded this wine 2 Glasses (out of 3), which is its ‘very good to excellent’ rating (2012). Barbera d’Asti was awarded its DOCG in 2008. The wine must be 85% Barbera, with the rest made up of Freisa, Grignolino or Dolcetto. To be a Superiore, it must be aged at least one year in the winery (six months of which must be in oak or chestnut), and exhibit a higher natural alcohol by volume than the regular Barbera d’Asti. Look for blackberry, pomegranate and spring flower aromas and flavours. Enjoy this fresh, vibrant wine. Source: Vintages Panel

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.
