Monique Sosa rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A decent Italian red blend with mild floral and berry aromas. The palate is med bodied with moderate acidity and grippy tannins. This wine not necessarily out of balance but lacks a bit of complexity in flavours. Enjoy with a meaty pizza. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Alex: Rustic, savoury and old school in every way is the 2012 Lungarotti Rubesco. Thyme and sage dried herbs season rich plum and zesty sour cherry tones with a background touch of potpourri and old leather comprise the nose. The palate is largely medium-bodied with prickly acids and a fair dollop of chalky grape tannin. Spicy, savoury, very much like a pasta it would pair best with. Veal parmigiano anyone? 88 pts

Natalie's Review

Lungarotti Rubesco Sangiovese Canaiolo Colorino 2012, Rosso Di Torgiano, Umbria D.O.C., Italy: Very tart, acidic and tannic: sour cherry notes with blackened earth. Perfect for a tangy, acidic tomato sauce best served in a rustic Italian taverna with Mamma coaxing you to eat more ... You are too thin! This rustic Italian red wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Canailo and Colorino grapes. Lots of minerality and earthy notes. Drink: 2015-2018. 368548 13.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 88/100.

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.
