Reviews and Ratings

This Italian red wine is made using the Appassionato which is similar to how Amarone wines of Veneto are made. "Graticcio" is the local name for the traditional bamboo racks where the grapes for this wine are laid down and dried in the open air after the harvest and before vinification to add body, flavour and depth to the wine. After fermentation, the wine is aged in oak casks. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
