In his Comment on our work Glutsch raises, on the basis of a calculation for a dimerized three-dimensional superlattice, four points: (1) odd-parity excitons do not contribute to optical absorption, (2) there are no forbidden single-particle transitions, (3) there is a coupling of the (Formula presented)-hh2 exciton (called (Formula presented) in Ref. 1 to the underlying (Formula presented)-hh1 continuum that leads to a Fano resonance, and (4) the extension of the exciton wave function is infinite in an all space directions rather than having a small extension. In this Reply these four points are addressed and it is shown that our previous conclusions remain valid.
