96 points Int'l Wine Review

The 2011 Sassicaia is an absolutely sensational release in this vintage, as it displays stunning elegance and class, yet with plenty of muscle as well. It immediately begins to impress as it opens with seductive aromas of freshly crushed blackberries and currants followed by toast, roasted coffee, graphite and minerals, which all come together beautifully in the glass. This possesses a gorgeous fine, velvety texture and shows remarkable balance and finesse as it finishes up long, silky and caressing, leaving behind notes of pure dark fruits. (JD) (5/2014)

95 points Decanter

The 2011 Sassicaia comes from a vintage with a cold winter, a mild spring with abundant rains and a very good difference in temperatures between night and day during the summer and there were sunny days during the harvest. You can feel this sunny bright personality in the wine. The nose is open and accessible with aromas of bright red fruit and cream. On the palate there are contrasting flavours which are a little green and firm but these are enveloped in a luxurious texture and weight. (SH) (11/2022)

95 points Wine Spectator

Ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors pick up rosemary, mineral and spice accents in this red, which is concentrated and intense, fresh and focused. Racy midpalate, this leans toward black currant and cedar notes on the solid finish. *Collectible* (BS) (10/2014)

94 points James Suckling

Dark chocolate and supple red berry fruits on the nose with plenty of raspberry and cassis. The palate’s quite fine, juicy and lithe with good balance, good drive and great depth. Toasty oak builds through the finish, showing a strong earthy thread and a core of crisp tannin. (NS) (1/2015)

94 points Wine Advocate

The 2011 Bolgheri Sassicaia speaks to a broad, yet very distinct audience. I am absolutely charmed by this vintage. Soft cherry and blackberry confit emerge from the bouquet in thick, luscious waves. Leather, spice and tar play supporting roles. The wine offers a generous and expansive style. It also shows impressive balance and coherent inner integrity. This vintage certainly bears the hallmarks of a hot vintage, but it never feels overdone. It delivers volume, intensity and rich texture. This Sassicaia is a wine of enormous craftsmanship.
