The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker -94 points

The 2004 Acininobili is a berry by berry selection of botrytised Vespaiola that is aged in new French oak. This layered, opulent sweet wine reveals tons of sweet, candied fruit, flowers, spices and tosted oak. This awesome, thrilling wine needs a few years in bottle to incorporate its oak, but the wine’s potential is amply evident today. Anticipated Maturity: 2009-2019
