Wine Advocate -October 07 - James Suckling - 96 points

Decadent and rich, with aromas of truffle, porcini and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with ultrasoft, velvety tannins. Long and very beautiful, with loads of everything, from fruit to coffee. Seductive. The best wine ever from this producer. Best after 2009
