Reviews and Ratings

Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Subdued aromas of sweet blackberries and dark plums, violet, vanilla, spearmint, leather, and damp forest floor. Repeats on the medium-light palate with good fruit purity and freshness. The tannins are medium-low and the acids medium-high. Though this wine is not very complex it offers a decent length finish of dark fruit and spearmint, with a touch of cocoa emerging. Pair with chicken parmesan or light pastas. Tasted March 2016.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Light-boded, smokey, touch of sweetness, floral, damp cellar, and black pepper. Black cherry and fleshy black plum if you dig for it. Some youthful tannins that suggest decanting. Enjoy over the next 5-7years.
Tasted: January 2016
This northern Italian red wine is designated Superiore and is aged for 8 months in oak barrels and then another 4 months in the bottle before it's released from the winery to the market. - 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.

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.
