Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A nice and honest sangiovese from Maremma. Candied cherry and spice on the nose and nice fine tannins and juicy acidity follow through; medium bodied. Perfect with old-fashioned beef stew or pretend you are in Italy at a pizza joint with red checked tablecloths and pour into a tumbler...
The Sangiovese grapes that make this wine are grown in the DOC appellation of Maremma Toscana situated in southern Tuscany. It's a warm climate with many hours of sunlight to ripen the grapes. - 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.
