Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2013 vintage is ruby red and 13.5% ABV. THis wine shows full bodied and very dry on the palate. Aromatics of tart cherry and minerality, with aromatic sage and tomato leaf. This wine pairs well with tangy tomato based Italian dishes and is made to enjoy accompanying food. Enjoy 2015-2020.
Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Langhe blend is a classic example of the new world styles being produced in Piedmont. Lots of ripe fruit on the nose; dark cherry, blackberry with mild spice and cedar notes. The fruit is just as ripe on the palate and the acidity mouthwatering. Very clean style with youthful tannins. Drink now with grilled lamb or cellar for 3-5 years.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Spicy notes of pepper and anise, along with cherry and a hint of caramel. Spice is subtle on the palate. Cherry comes through with some nice acidity. Great pasta sauce wine.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ripe, tart cherry aromas with hints of sage, pine, and violet. Tart cherry is primary in the taste as well with some young tannins. Pair with creamy tomato pastas.
Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Ample ripe cherry fruit, and a nose that gives glimmers of Barolo from the percentage of Nebbiolo. Ripe tannins in quantities lower than expected for a dolcetto based wine. Drink now or age 4 years.

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.
