Quintarelli Ca' Del Merlo 2010 is full-bodied and juicy Ripasso-style red blend of 85% Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella with the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Nebbiolo, Croatina and Sangiovese from the Veneto wine region. Yes, it has everything, including fresh red cherry, red berry, blackberry and dried blueberry flavours on the palate with a lingering spicy and dark chocolate finish. Such an incredible juicy, layered and structured wine, so named in honour of the former winemaker, Giuseppe Quintarelli, who passed in 2012. Raise a glass and pair with a prime rib roast dinner and wine friends. - 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.
