Savoury, meaty, dry and delicious! Dark red fruit, dark spices, smoke and dried herbs. A terrific wine for many meaty dishes or pasta with tomato sauce. Great price for such quality.

Nebbiolo (Barolo, Barbaresio) food pairings: homemade tagliatelle and veal ragú, grilled pork sausages.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Cabernet Sauvignon in nearly equal parts. Powerful and structured, yet maintains its elegance and finesse. Aromas and flavours of blackberries, black cherries, dark chocolate, minerals, sweet earth, and a subtle kiss of oak. To be enjoyed with roasted game meat, pasta, or with a few slices of Piave vecchio. 91 points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Ornati is a wonderful wine. This red blend from Piedmont has the succulence and acidity to pair with almost any meal and a natural intensity of fragrances that won’t easily be overwhelmed. Source: Monica Larner, Wine Enthusiast, Sept. 2011

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.
