Reviews and Ratings

Terra D'Aligi, Tatone (2014) is a great value Montepulciano D'abruzzo from the Abruzzo wine region. This is full-bodied, rustic red with dark fruit and chocolate on the palate. Supple and easy to drink, this wine is a perfect pairing to a ultra fully-dressed meat lover's pizza. The wine was first produced in 1997, by Carlo and Adriano Spinelli. Tatone is the local word for "grandfather," and was applied to the wine because it reflected strength and authority of their grandfather. - 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.
