Drank in 2010 - Huge disappointment. Decanted. Colour turning - nose short - acid high, no length in taste, not a 250 euro bottle. I have never found their other wines lacking. Maybe it's me but I could drink Le Difese till the cows come home and maybe I will But Sassicaia .....

Complex aromas of minerals, berries, tobacco and shells. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a succulent, refined aftertaste. A pretty Sass. Best after 2004. 13,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 San Guido Sassicaia 3000ml

Saturated dark ruby. Sultry aroma of crushed blackberry complicated by a whiff of cinnamon. Layers of earthy, mouthfilling blackberry flavor are supported by gauzy tannins and a welcome core of acidity, followed by white pepper and graphite on the pl... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
