    October 12, 2019 - 2016 and 2013 Sassicaia served side-by-side (Hotel Diamant, San Cassiano, Alta Badia, Dolomites).

    The 2013 was a bit more reticent and less fleshy than the 2016, through after about an hour of air, the 2013 showed signs of life in the form of red and black cherry, raspberry seed, red and black currant, grilled rosemary, dry soil, sandstone, and some scorched earth.

    More of a red fruit profile when compared to the 2016, with less of a chewy mid-palate drop than its younger and beefier sibling. Give the 2013 a few more years to find a little more expressiveness and depth. Try again in 2023+. 93-94+ points.

    August 27, 2019 - Very young, tight and closed. After many hours in a decanter it opened up nicely but still feels like there is a lot of room for improvement and a few hours of air isn’t enough. Still enjoyable, but I would wait at least 5 years before opening another bottle.

    July 30, 2019 - Dark deep burgundy. Full bodied!
    Pencil lead, some dark fruit. Creosote. Wet paper.
    Silky smooth. Dark fruit. Cigar box! Dry!

    A fantastic wine that will get better! Great value. I can only see this bottle going up in price in the coming years! Buy it!

    June 5, 2019 - Lighter than expected, with a bit of spice. Probably too young. Excellent notes of spice, mint. June 2019.
