One of the most polished sassicaia I’ve had... silky, glossy and complete, mocha, cinnamon, dark deep fruit, leather, plum. Wonderfully complex with noticeable oak but all seamless. Not too hot- still tangy and bright.

Had this February 16th 2015. Absolutely incredible! Was decanted 4h and was still drinking big after 8h. Saving the last glass for tomorrow in a glass on the counter. I'm sure it will be at the best then.

Bluntly elegant, and undeniably great. Stacey Shipman would definitely say, "such a lush."
