Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A wonderful recioto, vintage 2008 tasted in Dec 2015. Exceeded expectations with a full body, intense ripe fruit and sweet finish with long persistence of blueberry jam and prune. Enjoy 2015-2018.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A pleasant combination of raisin, prune, figs, cherry, floral,nuttiness and mocha. Balanced acidty and smooth texture. Like a fine piece of red silk. Traditonal Italian dessert wine to be enjoyed with cakes and pastries.
Tasted: March 2015

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
