Agent: Joseph Cipelli Wines & Spirits

Natalie's Score: 91/100

From Zenato, a beautifully balanced, full-bodied red wine blend of Merlot and Corvina red wine grapes from the Veneto wine region. Look for dark cherry, ripe plum, dried herbs, cedar spice and dark chocolate flavours on the palate. Structured with grippy tannins. Give it meat! A grilled Bistecca Florentine would do fine.

Food pairings: roast beef, meat lover's pizza topped with steak, meaty pasta in tomato sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Alanera 2016 is a full-bodied and intense appassimento style red wine from the Veneto wine region. Produced from Merlot and Corvina red wine grapes with ripe dark plum, sous bois, cedar spice, savoury herb, dark chocolate and sweet spice flavours on the palate. Enjoy now and for the next three years with a meaty lasagne or Bistecca Florentine. - 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.
