Big. Rich. Balanced. Young. Needs more time. I would say wait until it’s 15.

Rich nose but unexpectedly one-dimensional palate, deep red cherry core, beautiful, feminine tartiness with a slightly clipped finish vs similar Sassicaia vintages. Very good but not great.

Probably my fifth or so taste of this vintage, and it’s always been amazing. At age 20, it’s a refined and very elegant wine with great depth and complete purity on the lengthy finish. Very impressive.
