Tasting Notes

Deep colour, just losing its purple rim. Still shy on the nose the palate is very broad and vital, with hallmark blackcurrant and mineral notes. Just beginning to open up and showcase its blackfruit and sinewy character. This can be drunk now but will benefit from another 5-10 years bottle age at least. Potentially bench mark Sassicaia. Limited Availability.

Reviews & Scores

Beautiful aromas of summer fruits and hints of cream. Then turns to dried Provençal herbs, such as rosemary. Well-defined Sass. Full-bodied, with sleek, refined tannins and a silky finish. All in finesse. Classy wine. Almost chewy. Reminds me of the excellent 1997, but this is slightly better. Give it time. Best after 2008.
