94 points Wine News: "[$75 list] Reserved, dusty scents of blackberry, violets and dried tobacco. Silky smooth flavors of chocolate-covered berries, espresso bean and treacle. Lingering, focused close concludes on a dry note. (Mar/Apr/May 2007)"
93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "San Luigi’s 2003 Fidenzio (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot) presents generous notes of succulent ripe cherries, tobacco, herbs and sweet toasted oak with an irresistibly plump texture. It offers superb concentration on the palate, with terrific balance and plenty of style. A few years of bottle age should help soften the tannins, but this is one of the vintage’s standouts and it is sure to deliver much pleasure over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. (Jun 2007)"
