Dark ruby red. Blackberry, with lots of fresh herb and meat character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and loads of fresh fruit and tarragon. Dill flavors on the finish. Textbook Sassicaia that grows in the mouth... Wine Spectator

Everything you should expect from an aged Sassicaia. Still fresh, powerful and fruity but refined with a smoother and velvety finish.

Surprisingly light on its feet, yet with intensity enough to get my attention, this herbaceous and gently evolved version has sweet and more-ish tannins, juicy acidity and mid-weight stuffing. It ain't big, but wonderfully balanced.

A pretty wine with that textbook herbs and earth that is common in all of these wines a bit of peppery spice. Very smooth and silky sweet fruit with lovely freshness echoing that spice earth notes drinking very nicely but has the structure to age a bit more bit drinking so nicely right now it is hard to keep away from. Finish 45+ excellent+

Very very solid. But not really wowing.
