This exceptional 1995 has two decades of aging potential ahead of it. The wine boasts a nearly opaque ruby/purple color as well as a knock-out nose of lead pencil pain grille minerals licorice and black currants. As the wine sat in the glass violet/floral notes began to emerge. In the mouth it is tightly-knit and tannic but superbly concentrated as well as remarkably pure. It possesses that sweet rich mid-palate that often distinguishes great wines from merely good wines. The finish lasts for over 30 seconds. This wine should only be purchased by readers willing to wait the 5-6 years needed for it to shed its raw tannin and grapiness. The 1995 appears to be a Sassicaia to rival the estate's other top vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.

Best Sassicaia since the '90. Rich in currant blackberry dried herbs and tanned leather on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied with very soft yet fine tannins and a long caressing finish. Hard to resist now. Best... Best Sassicaia since the '90. Rich in currant blackberry dried herbs and tanned leather on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied with very soft yet fine tannins and a long caressing finish. Hard to resist now. Best after 1999. -JS
