95 points "Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec '02 Rated: 93-96 Good full red. Knockout floral perfume on the nose, along with marzipan and underbrush. Densely packed but wonderfully fresh, with powerful spine and terrific grip. A wine of great verve and energy. Finishes with palate-staining fruits and flowers. Tannins are firm but thoroughly buffered by the wine's sheer material.

Most Wine publications have seriously overlooked this excellent Piedmont Vintage. 5.0 of 5 Stars"
