Reviews and Ratings

Torre Del Falasco 2016 is a Ripasso Valpolicella from Valpantena and takes its name from the lair of a thief named Falasco, who used a small tower as his hideout. The 2016 vintage is a juicy, medium-plus-bodied red blend of 70% Corvina 30% Rondinella with ripe, dark cherry, sweet spice, smoke and meaty flavours on the palate. Pair with grilled veal chops. - 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.
