Heather Wall rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a text book Amarone with classic dried fruit, fresh cherry, sweet baking spices, leather, cola. This is a deep and supple full-bodied red wine that goes down ever so smooth.Acidity is medium+ and the finish is long with sweet spices and raisin. Cellar potential over the next 10 years. Please let me be there when you open it!
Enjoy with finer cuts of red meat.
Tasted: May 2015
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red, the nose displays textbook dried fruit characteristics that the world has grown to love from the high quality Amarone wines produced in Valpolicella. Dried fruit, dark berries, tar, cola, and dark cherry. The palate displays luscious sweet dark fruit, liquorice, spice, and cola, all in a velvty smooth and dry style. Beautiful now and will continue to show well for many years. Drink 2015-2022. Tasted April 2015. 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

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.

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.
