| 96 pts, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate December 2014: "Representing an extreme selection of botrytised Vespaiola grapes, the 2009 Acininobili is a home-run dessert wine that awards enormous pleasure to those lucky enough to drink it. The fragrant bouquet is intense and sweet, but safely void of any cloying or heavy sensations. Indeed, it presents a level of brightness and buoyancy that is rare for grapes affected by noble rot. Pristine aromas of candied fruit, preserved lemon, exotic spice and marron glacé rise from the glass. The elegance and silkiness of the mouthfeel yearn for the highest caliber foie gras for culinary companionship."
92 pts, Wine Spectator February 2015: "Creamy and lightly mouthcoating, with fine integration of the bright, citrusy acidity, which frames flavors of candied nectarine, blood orange confit, pickled ginger and tea rose. Ripe fruit and a hint of candied nut linger on the finish. Vespaiola. Drink now through 2025. 200 cases made.
