Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A tasty Tuscan blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cab Sauv and 5% Merlot. Lots of cherry, vanilla and sweet spice on the nose followed by a lush, fruity palate with Sangiovese playing the lead and Cab filling out the ripe flavours. Mouth-watering acidity makes this a sure bet with pasta in tomato sauce.
Tasted Jan. 2017
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Bright ruby. Subdued aroma of cherries and balsamic notes. Medium-light bodied with a medium length of red fruit flavours and soft, low tannins and a long cheerful acidity. Good value as an every day wine. Score 84. (Reviewed Dec. 10, 2016)

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.
