Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a lively wine, brimming with gorgeous aromas and flavours of cherry, black currant, herbs, spice, and a touch of old leather and dried tobacco. Demands food. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

So I read that you drink Amarone with Osso Bucco. I am on a budget and have to source out an Italian wine that would work as a substitute. This is what I discovered. A nice ruby red wine from the south of Italy. A dark fruit nose with some spice notes. The taste of plum jam and that hint of acidity which matches the Osso Bucco and Risotto.
A great value wine cost 1/2 as much as an amarone and my wife liked it. I highly recommend this wine it is an affordable drink experience.

Natalie's Review

Di Majo Norante Biferno Rosso Ramitello 2012, Molise Doc, Italy: Big and rich Italian red wine with generous layers of dark plums and smoke notes and mocha. Terrific price! Good aging potential but also ready to enjoy tonight with pizza. This medium-bodied blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Aglianico grapes offers lots of depth of flavour in the glass. Mouth-watering and perfect for ribeye steak. VERY nice! Drink: 2015-2019. 973214 13.50% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 90/100. February 18, 2017 Best Value Red Wine. Best Beef Wine  Full Review

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.
