93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Very deep ruby to the rim. Musky aromas of dark plum, blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. Then juicy, intense and sharply delineated, with lovely lift to the flavors of dark berries, minerals and cedar. Wonderfully balanced wine sound acids leave an impression of great clarity and cut and a fresh, lightweight mouth feel. Finishes with silky, suave, spreading tannins and a very intense, persistent saline/mineral element. (EB) (01/2011)

Complex aromas of minerals, berries, tobacco and shells. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a succulent, refined aftertaste. A pretty Sass. (JS) (09/2002)

92 points Decanter

There is also a little deposit in the glass betraying a wine that is ageing, with the colour and tannin just starting to soften. It is in here, in these older wines, that you start to really understand the quality of the Sassicaia tannins. The oak regime was more abundant in the 1990s than in recent vintages, and it is evident in a tarry edge, in the rich toast to the blackberry fruits meshed with cinnamon spicing. You can feel the power and potential of this wine, perfect to drink now but could still happily age another few decades. (JA) (10/2016)

18/20 points Jancis Robinson

Deep garnet and very little sign of age in the colour. Some cedary freshness and a touch of old polished furniture. Dark cherry and still has some cassis. Very slight touch of coffee. Rich, smooth chocolate texture but it lightens up to a refined finish. Still has great balance and length and finishes with that mouthwatering freshness that is, for me, Sassicaia’s hallmark. Lots of complexity. 18/20 points (JH) (03/2010)
