93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "After a pretty, but less the perfect bottle of the 1973 Tondonia Gran Reserva, I was happy to cross paths with a perfect bottle in the last few months. The bouquet is deep, pure and vibrant on the ’73 Tondonia Gran Reserva, as it jumps from the glass in a blaze of cinnamon, singed wood, coffee, strawberry, orange zest, a touch of white pepper and a lovely base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and tangy, with lovely elegance and focus, sound mid-palate depth, and excellent length and grip on the silky and complex finish. Just an excellent bottle in its prime of life. I clearly underrated this wine a touch the last time I tasted it. 2008-2020. (Jan/Feb 2009)"
