Gift from Mark Caletti

David Lawrason

This is a firm, powerful and complex amarone, to stick in the cellar for a couple of years. There is intriguing complexity with very ripe plum/prune, fruit, roasted chestnut, underbrush, leather and a slightly damp earth tone. It is full bodied, rich, powerful, dense and warm with firm acidity, a sense of minerality and considerable drying, gritty/sandy tannin. Excellent length. Last tasted July 2013.

Oh No a typo…and thats what happens when you thoroughly enjoy a fantastic wine! Cesari Amerone 2008 !
it was one of those nights! i felt reckless, so what it was mid week...i looked into the wine fridge, there she was, that bottle that i was saving for a special occasion...well this was that occasion, i needed something that was going to make me sigh that sigh of pure contentment .....I reached for the Amarone...This wine literally morphs! On the nose, there was a rich berry presence, cherries..the first taste is curious, the cherries are non negotiable, they are the dominant presence but then a rich chocolate note introduces itself, there was a floral flavour which i went backwards and forwards over...i thought for quite some while that it was violets but then it became so profound...rose...wow! there was a delicate introduction of spice and a delicious long tannin finish! a pure delight!
botooms up!

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
