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.

The 1995 Bolgheri Sassicaia still holds court, thank you very much.

The 1995 Bolgheri Sassicaia still holds court, thank you very much. It reminds me of a grande dame, or a woman of influence and sophistication who lights up the room thanks to her expertly delivered, albeit antiquated charm. The wine's aged evolution is evident as the bouquet releases sure aromas of dried fruit, old spice, saffron and cola. I can't say the aromas reach perfect equilibrium, because they don't. There is a muddled fruit note in there too that subtracts from its purity. The mouthfeel is svelte and lean with finely polished and silky tannins. In fact, the wine's texture shows precision and elegance. Pretty menthol notes appear on the long finish. - Monica Larner

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
