Natalie's Score: 91/100

Savoury, smoky and brooding with fleshy black fruit aromas. Ultra-delicious, full-bodied. Fairly smooth already in texture. Yum! This wine is a blend of mostly Uva di Troia grapes along with Montepulciano. Southern Italy has undergone a quality revolution. Taste this red to see what I mean.

Food pairings: roasted lamb, game meats.

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.
