Galloni (92-94 points):
"Deep red with ruby highlights. Sexy perfume of raspberry, licorice, violet and spicy new oak. Wonderfully sappy and intense, showing the reserve of a grand cru. Best today on the rising, salty, very long back end, where the dusty tannins arrive late. This may well give pleasure at all stages of its life in bottle, but I'd opt to hold mine for a decade"
