2003 Maculan "Acininobili" Veneto (375ml)

SKU #1150406 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2003 Acininobili is utterly mind-blowing in its expression of candied apricots, orange peel and cinnamon. Constantly changing in the glass, it reveals superb intensity and a stunningly gorgeous purity, with superb length and phenomenal poise. Acininobili is a selection made from botrytised Torcolato fruit. It is aged for two years in new French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017. (AG)  (10/2007)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Starts with subtle aromas and flavors of spicy dried apple and citrus and expands on the palate to include notes of golden syrup, citrus peel, salty mineral and fresh flowers. Medium- to full-bodied and medium sweet, with intense flavors that drive through the long, long finish. An exquisite sweetie. Drink now.  (4/2008)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep golden yellow color. Exotic fruits, caramel, and obvious botrytis character give the nose considerable appeal as well as a slight clumsiness. Thick and sweet in the mouth, with very ripe flavors of tropical fruits, caramelized banana and creme brulee But lacks the acidity to give it real definition. Finishes long and complex but a bit heavyhanded, with considerable sweetness.  (3/2006)

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
