92pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous
Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "A remarkable nose suggests truffle, raw scallop and horseradish as well as more prosaic white peach, poached pear, jellied quince, and almond extract. The delicate, creamy yet generously juicy palate impression is correspondingly distinctive and complex, leading to a lingering finish in which pure fruit flavors largely take precedence over the fascinatingly fungal, animal and sharply radish-like elements born of botrytis. I can only hedge my bets as to whether the sort of botrytis in evidence here will get in the way of long aging. Drinking window: 2016 - 2022." Jul 2016

Winery: "The spätlese shows a lot of sponti aromas right now, but what’s behind that are very deep flavors: black currents, pink peppercorns, dried apricot and bergamot. It is a spicy spätlese full of power yet still linear and focused."
