100 Point Score- The Wine Advocate
"A quintessential Sassicaia that represents the excellence of the vintage. Sassicaia offers impeccable balance, excellent freshness and absolutely no signs of over-ripeness. The fruit balance is ideal with a hint of crunch and lasting tension. Tannins are deftly managed with firm grip and enough velvetiness to add volume and length. No greenness ; instead offers mulled herbs and spice, with cinnamon and clove, layered delicately between mostly red and some purple berry fruits. Redcurrant, blueberry, sweet pomegranate and Rainier cherry run strong in this vintage. A fragrant hint of heritage rose emerges with time. The oak tones are geared toward gingerbread, hazelnut, cigar, sandalwood and something like a grilled sweet red pepper. To the palate, it offers nice weight with no heavy glycerin, and a rinse of acidity that adds to the wine’s natural energy, brightness and viscosity. That marked freshness opens the wine up to long aging potential, but you still need to give it more time in bottle.

"one of the best young Sassicaias I can remember tasting" All the elements came together during a long growing season to produce a rich, deep wine that marries textural intensity with classicism.
