Such a lovely Brunello here, fragrant, pure, balanced and polished, while still retaining that lovely savoury-floral sangiovese-Brunello character. Tannins are smooth and acids are balanced, making this a wine for the short or mid-term I suspect, but it will be a wine of great hedonistic pleasure in the meantime. Lovely. Tasted November 2016. Value Rating: ***
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Worthy holiday red right here! Aromas show mild cranberry, candied cherry, earthy underbrush, and spice notes. The plate shows high grippy tannins, a balanced acidity, and lovely concentrated fruit. The finish is long and minty. Enjoy pairing with braised beef and polenta. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.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.
