5 stars "Color: evolved; A great wine. Still at its peak."
rated: July 1, 2010 , from K&L
"93 points Wine Spectator: "450 cases imported. Rather tight right now but there's some very good ripe fruit and silky tannins. Full-bodied and well-knit, with a long finish. Needs more time in bottle. Big and rich. Best after 2006." K&L's notes - "Lisini has a wonderful south-facing exposure not far from Sant'Angelo in Colle. The '99 is the best I've had since the '91 "Ugolaia." The nose is full of sweet cherry tobacco, Chinese five-spice and fresh-cut leather that all have a dominant role in the nose. On the palate the wine shows great linear focus with a central core of mature but not overripe fruit, dense, powerful with very subtle tannins. More balance and complexity than the '97 and aging capability for my money! Drink 2005-2015. (Greg St Clair, Italian Wine Buyer) "
