Tasting Notes

Sassicaia made excellent wine again in a less-than-easy year. Shows its class. Rich yet balanced, and loaded with fruit and lots of jammy and plummy character. Full-bodied , with round tannins and a silky finish. Exotic.

Score: 93James Suckling, Wine Spectator Weekly (Jul 24, 03), July 2003

This millennial Sassicaia displays very good intensity on the nose, which is actually quite Southern Rhone in style, almost animally with a touch of liquorices and gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with good fruit concentration, cassis and blueberry, fine tannins and a real, succulent finish that disguises the structure underneath. Still youthful, this has more breeding and style than more recent releases. Drink 2010-2022. Tasted October 2008.
