Natalie's Score: 91/100

A smoky, toasty, earthy northern Italian red wine that's a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% equal parts Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot grapes. This wine was aged 12 months in barrels, and another 6 months in bottle before being released by the winery. Some led and spice on the finish. Pair with rare steak and truffle dishes.

Food pairings: meaty lasagne, cheesy pizza, tourtière.

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous wine at a perfect age (7 years). Shows lots of primary black cherry and plum with some dried briar fruit. There’s tertiary notes kicking in too with tobacco, leather and dried herb. Perfect pizza or pasta wine, or pair with rosemary roast pork. 91 Points
Tenuta L'impostino Montecucco Rosso (2011) is a red wine blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah wine grapes from the Tuscany wine region. On the nose, the wine is cherry, dark plum and cake spice. On the palate, the wine is a mouthful of ripe, liquid cherries and anise spice. Drink now and for the next three years. - 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.
