    August 23, 2020 - really seductive aromas with dark purple fruit, spices and sweet smoke. Full-bodied and balanced wine with a very good mouthfeel. Pretty darker raspberry fruit and sweet tobacco. Cool spices. Here the interaction is unique and all components are in balance with each other. Lacks a little concentration and depth, but harmony is always very good. 93 points.

    May 10, 2020 - no nose for me due to this fucking virus
    my palate can still discern a delicious varietal
    had from a 375 and in really good shape so will change the drink dates

    January 12, 2020 - Started out stiff and tannic, with a quick decant and an hour, it started to soften to show a big masculine wine. it was less ready than the 2001 I had recently, but very enjoyable. Lots of Oak and Tannin...

    November 28, 2019 - First time I have had a really at its peak Sassicaia and super Tuscan would I say. The oak is well integrated but still shows a bit, smoky, grilled sesame, dark fruits and berries, mango, passion fruit, pine tree, and sadly that coconut after a bit of aeration... Palate is smooth, delicate, nice but short... drink now for sure... Very good wine, solid !

    August 26, 2019 - Upon opening a slight hint of cork on the nose along with farmyard and lots if depth. Pleased to say the cork has disappeared after a day in a small kiln bottle. Now just deep fruit (mainly cherries and other red berries), leather and barn. On the palate very smooth and rich, almost velvety. Nicely integrated tannins. The finish is full and reasonably long (feels slightly fizzy). A great wine at its peak. Drink up.

    (Sassicaia) The first bottle was corked, and replaced at my request, to the delight of the gentleman sitting alongside me who had not spotted the fault. The second bottle was immensely superior. It is very dark on inspection, with a deeply pigmented central core running right out to a very thin rim. The nose is very intense; there is a great purity of fruit, with a slightly meaty-cherry character, and a toffee edge. It possesses a lovely, pure, cool style which it shows willingly on the palate, polished, direct and bright, with a wonderful composition. There is a fine tannic grip beneath, delicious acidity, with sappy and savoury fruit. A fine weight. Here is a wine with definition and grace but also power and potential, the latter two expressed in a very refined manner, as if encased in a velvet glove. A great finish and quite some length to it. This is very fine indeed.
