    October 12, 2019 - Sassicaia Vertical Tasting (Friend's home): Vertical tasting of '14, '15 & '16 Sassicaia (no detailed notes, going off of scents and flavors that were memorable).

    Wine of the night. Aromas of dark earth, dark fruits and a soft spice. This showed a lot better than my previous experience of this bottle and more in-line to the first few times I had this a year ago (probably bottle variation for the previous tasting note). Bold flavors of dark and dense red and black fruits and deep earth. The oak and spice is more subtle compared to the '14 and '16. This was good straight from the bottle and became slightly better with time in the glass. The texture and feel of this on the palate is richer and denser than '14 and '16. It's also more well put together and presented itself a lot better than the other two. A good reminder as to why I purchased these in the first place. A pleasure to enjoy now if you ask me but I usually like them young.

    September 14, 2019 - Still just a baby but already showing lots of promise. We decanted for 3 hours and drank it over the next two. Lots of cherry, with leather, floral notes, earth, tar. Everything’s you’d expect out of a big Tuscan but still elegant. Not by any means jammy or heavily extracted. Firm tannins but well integrated. Plenty of acid without being tart.

    August 24, 2019 - Gifted and drank at a friend's home. I won't have detailed notes but what I remember most was that it was mushroomy, earthy, slightly oaky and a moderate-plus amount of acidity.

    **Later edit: appears to be bottle variation, rating of 92 removed.

    July 9, 2019 - Big wine indeed but not unwieldy; blueberry, blackberry, herbes de provence. Rich and saturating palate with good poise. Finishes very well.

    June 15, 2019 - This Sassicaia is so promising. After a one hour decant, this shows a knock out nose of flowers, red fruit and a touch of tobacco. The palate is full bodied but suave and silky even at this young age. Layers of black and red currant, chocolate and tobacco. This wine is also well integrated and focused with a very long finish. I expect this to be a great sassicaia as it ages and may very well merit a higher score in time.
