Galloni (91-93 points):
"Vivid ruby-red. Displays vibrant, spice-tinged aromas of candied red fruits, cola and licorice, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of allspice. The floral quality comes back strongly on the long, subtly tannic finish, which leaves a zesty spicecake note behind."
