Reviews and Ratings

OTHER: This is a terrific vintage for white wines along the Tuscan coast, and the 2016 Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia absolutely hits all the high notes. The blend sees anywhere from 70% to 80% Sauvignon Blanc with Viognier and Vermentino in supporting roles. Every once in a while, a dash of Verdicchio is thrown in for good measure. Some 35,000 bottles are produced. This wine is beautifully snappy, tonic and fresh. The effect is especially successful in terms of the palate, where the wine revives and refreshes but not in a banal way. There is enough complexity here - with passion fruits, garden greens, spring flowers and sweet almonds - to keep your attention, sip after sip. This is a profoundly inviting and satisfying wine. Drink Date: 2018-2021. Score - 92+ (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Sept. 6, 2018). - 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.
