Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Made from 100% Nebbiolo, this Italian Red has aromas of plum and black cherry with notes of cinnamon, cedar, eucalyptus and potpourri as well as chocolate and truffle.

It is medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with sour cherry and tart plum flavours followed by cocoa and cinnamon. The finish is clean and not bitter. The tannins are smooth and well integrated.

Tasted March 2019.

Wine-Food Pairing: I paired this wine with linguine in a fresh marinara sauce topped with grated Romano cheese, a wonderful pairing. It would also pair well with sharp cheeses such as Parmesan, with barbecued red meat, or with grilled Portobello mushrooms.

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.
