Reviews and Ratings

This example leans more towards a classically styled wine than one usually finds in DOC Coste della Sesia, but still maintains the fruit-forward approachability for which the region is noted. Aromas of ripe cherry and strawberry, anise, plum and violets. The palate is rich in bright cherry and sweet strawberry with herb and anise tones. Very balanced with a good tannic backbone.

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.
