Luca Beso de Dante 2006

90 points, , Stephen Tanzer

"Deep ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis and licorice; verging on porty. Fat, lush and sweet but not especially deep, with a flamboyantly high-toned quality to the dark fruit and nutty oak flavors. Offers a distinct open-knit texture and unrestrained quality for a wine from Laura Catena. Finishes a bit soft, with broad ripe tannins and more nutty oak. Conveys an impression of fast-ripening fruit and should provide early pleasure."
