    October 29, 2021 - Utregs Wijnhuis tasting Exclusief (Utrecht): [Tasted blind] Misstook it for a left bank Bordeaux. At the moment just (way) too young, even after multiple decants over 24 hours. The nose is still very closed, dark fruit, pencil shavings, green pepper, ceder, clove. On the palate also closed, significant tannins.

    October 9, 2021 - Dull garnet with an orange tint to it. Clementine and red berry notes on the nose. Similar tasting notes with a bit of a sour, almost acrid finish.

    July 18, 2021 - Clear pale ruby/brick; clean medium plus nose of ripe red cherries, leather, slight balsamic and blackberry jam; dry; high acidity; medium tannins; medium plus alcohol; medium body; medium plus flavour intensity; palate is tarter with addition of savoury herbs; long finish; very disappointing palate - came across as very acidic, thin and focused - more like a Sangiovese based wine than a Bordeaux blend; this is our first of four bottles; hopefully this was an off bottle

    June 25, 2021 - I have to agree with Mr. Smith. This tastes like oak staves and dish soap. I could see it coming together 10 years from now, but it requires a certain faith or at least optimism.

    June 8, 2021 - My first tasting of Sassicaia and I had high expectations. I was underwhelmed. Even after decanting for six hours there was not enough fruit and tannin to balance the acidity.
