94 points "A blockbuster. Emits deep aromas of dark and ripe fruit, with lots of mineral and smoke character. Full-bodied and superpowerful, boasting masses of tannins and fruit this wine is years away from being ready. Best after 2005. 500 cases made. –JS Score: 94 Release Price: $40 Country: Italy Region: Tuscany Special Designation: Highly Recommended Issue: Sep 30, 2001 " Best 2006-

90 points "The dense ruby/purple-colored 1997 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva (80% Prugnolo Gentile and 20% Canaiolo) offers notes of sweet black cherry and currant fruit, leather, and flowers, medium to full body, and a long, expansive finish with no hard edges. Already accessible, this beauty can be drunk now and over the next decade." Best 2002-2012
