96/100 - The Tenuta San Guido 2006 Bolgheri Sassicaia is a timeless classic. This might just be the vintage to photograph in an encyclopedia entry for Sassicaia. This is especially true at this exact moment in its long and promising drinking window. The wine shows less volume compared to some of the more opulent vintages, but it absolutely excels in terms of length and finish. It offers amazing drive and momentum that are fueled by the extremely fine nature of the wine's texture and the seamless unity of its flavors. It treads in light and delicate footsteps that will carry it far into the future. As they say in Italian: "Piano piano si va lontano" (slowly slowly you go far). - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate 

97/100 - The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all-time great recent vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred. The year started off very warm but by August evening temperatures had moderated, leaving the fruit with a stunning combination of ripeness, perfume, acidity and tannin. The wine is simply glorious, that's all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky finish lasts an eternity, as waves of fruit caress the tannins with breathtaking elegance. Everything is in the right place in this magical Sassicaia. This is one for the ages. In a word: Awesome. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

19/20 - Vibrant dark crimson. Very much the opposite of Rollandian style. Lovely freshness and relaxed fluidity. Great stuff. Great balance and only just ready. - Jancis Robinson MW

99/100 - To be honest I gave the Sassicaia 1985 a 100 points at the same tasting, but those notes have already been published, and it’s a vintage that has been celebrated plenty of times. Both bottles were from one of the standout tastings of the year – in Rome, a vertical of Sassicaia dating back over five decades. This 2006 has guts and glory, there is stuffing here. The exotic heat comes through like a pan-seared filet steak, nothing more than a flash fire that gives way to succulence. More exoticism with the dancing array of flavours, from plums, damson and spices to forest fruits and heather then the menthol kicks comes in. You just want to linger over this glass, pick apart the individual flavours and get to understand what it is saying. - Jane Anson, Decanter


Sassicaia was first produced in 1968, making it the first of the Super-Tuscans. An innovative blend of the two Cabernets, this wine is composed of 85% Sauvignon and 15% Franc.

The 2006 is one of the all-time great releases of Sassicaia, and this excellent iteration of the cuvée has an almost otherworldly intensity and elegance.
Dark fruit nuances of bold cherry and blackberry jump out of the glass before notes of vanilla and spice.
