96 points "The 1996 Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is a wine of extraordinary balance. It displays a captivating, nuanced nose of menthol, spices, cocoa, oak, and licorice followed by layers of dark fruit that continually unfold in the glass. The tannins have softened somewhat, but this remains a young wine in need of a few more years of cellaring. If I had to pick one wine that captures this producer at his very best, the 1996 Ciabot would be at the top of my list. I fell in love with this wine when it was released and it never ceases to amaze for its superb elegance and harmony. 96/drink after 2008, 10/05" Best 2009-2020
