Decanter 93 points, Vinous 93 points.
"Very deep ruby. Spiced strawberry, violet and peony aromas are complicated by hints of candied violet and cinnamon. Then juicy, bright and dense with sneaky concentration and density to the very suave red cherry and sweet spice flavors. Finishes very long, and remarkably light and lively on the palate, with wonderful acid-sugar-tannin balance. Marvelous Amarone that is more about grace than power, though it’s certainly no shrinking violet. I love its easy to drink quality. (Vinous)
