(2001 Vintage) ROBERT PARKER (93 pts.) The 2001 Lupicaia, which uses the estate’s best Cabernet and Merlot, is an impenetrable ruby in color, and the powerful, expansive flavors of berry fruit, eucalyptus, and coconut, the dense and shapely palate, and the rich, sensual finish are the attributes of a wine of superior class and caliber. The wine will drink well for another decade and a half.
Wine & Spirits(2004 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. This blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot clearly looks to Bordeaux for inspiration, although the black mushroom flavors and earthy tannins plant it firmly in Tuscany. It gains more depth and mineral character with air, a counterbalance to the rich texture and ripe blackberry fruit. An elegant, stately pour for a ribeye.
