Full-bodied it's firm and rock-solid yet tastes very silky thanks to sensational concentration of fruit. Loads of minerally peppery character and blackberry and red berry flavors. Supercharged intense long finish.--Sassicaia vertical. Best after 2002. (PM)

This firmly structured medium weight restrained example of Sassicaia exhibits an impressive deep dark ruby color and a perfumed super-ripe nose of black fruits and toasty vanillin from aging in new oak casks. In the mouth there is excellent concentration crisp acidity and plenty of tannin glycerin and alcohol in the admirable finish. Though it is neither as multi-dimensional nor concentrated as the other-worldly 1985 nor as opulent as the 1982 it is nevertheless another brilliant example of what heights Cabernet Sauvignon can achieve in the soils of Tuscany.
