Jancis Robinson Author: Tamlyn Currin

Fairly subdued on the nose (but in fairness the sample had only just been opened - I'd love to look at this after decanting), just an allusion to prune and leather. But absolutely stunning on the palate. The spice is softly embroidered into shimmering fruit. Very very firm, sleek tannins. Terribly elegant, softly spoken and precise. Detailed and fine lined. Unending silky-spiced length. (TC)

The 1998 Sassicaia exhibits a dense ruby color with purple highlights and a classic nose of cedar, spice box, licorice, and black currants. Medium-bodied, powerful, extracted, and rich as well as elegant and well-balanced, it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should evolve for 15-20.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Lovely, subtle yet complex aromas of currants, sage and green olives lead to a full-bodied red with a solid core of fruit and well-integrated tannins. Still very reserved on the finish, but those who are patient should be rewarded. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 13,000 cases made.
