    January 2, 2022 - Huge nose of black and blue fruit, cedar wood, tobacco... Very refined tannin, super silky and elegant texture, red and black cherries, very very nice!

    July 7, 2021 - Maybe just not my style, but tasted this blind not knowing what it was, and it just tasted like a typical run of the mill Super Tuscan, rather than the benchmark wine it's supposed to be.

    June 10, 2021 - Wine Pages Dinner at 67 Pall Mall (67 Pall Mall): Flight of Tuscan cabernet blends - Sassicaia 2011 vs Isole e Olena Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata 2008

    Well the Sass is very very shy (perhaps a challenging comparison to the sensory joys of the previous flight) - after time comes hints of blue plum, allspice and a sweet vanilla note - lovely but tauntingly shy

    The palate is again a little bit backward with blue fruit, good acidity and some structured tannin. There is a sense of good wine making here and brooding potential but this is no way near ready.

    I bought a pair of these and the other bottle will wait a long while yet.

    90 points for now but see this ramping up

    May 25, 2021 - Really good, but young. It’s a bit bright cherry on the palette and can use some more cellar time... but overall a fantastic bolgheri.

    Will revisit again in a year.
