97/100 - I had reviewed this wine just a few months prior and my impression has remained pretty much the same. One difference I did notice at this more recent tasting of the 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is the bouquet. It has shifted to slightly more delicate and finessed aromas of pressed flower and blue violets. You do of course get that solid core of dark fruit and spice that characterizes this famous Tuscan blend. But that extra time in the bottle has awarded wiggle room for profound precision and focused detailing. The wine's complexity emerges slowly with subtle notes of savory spice and tobacco. There is power and depth here, especially in terms of the mouthfeel. As the wine evolves in the glass, it begins to show ethereal tones of road paving, tar and licorice. This Sassicaia should go straight into the cellar. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate 

93-96+/100 - Tasted from separate lots in barrel, the 2013 Sassicaia is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Rich, layered and expansive on the palate, the 2013 possesses remarkable depth, spherical texture and fine, silky tannins that wrap around the finish. A first sample, taken from a parcel in Mandrione shows remarkable perfume, while a second sample, from 40 year-old vines in Castiglioncello is all about density and power. There is a lot to look forward to here, that much is obvious. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

17/20 - Mid crimson with the strong balsam note on the nose that I noted when I tasted a couple of samples of this wine last month. Very much a restrained style – nothing like the full-on opulence of Ornellaia. I wonder whether there is quite a bit of younger-vine fruit in the blend?  But it builds towards the most appetising and elegant finish. Pretty smart, but it seems just a little timorous. I don't think this will go down as one of Sassicaia's landmark vintages. - Jancis Robinson MW

99/100 - The Sassicaia 2013 is just beautiful, and it takes a leap forward in quality. There is even greater precision and transparency with the aromas and flavours, there is a wonderful harmony and ease on the palate and there are even finer, and more seamless tannins on this wine. According to my co-host, Priscilla Incisa Della Rocchetta 2013 was a 'record vintage for Sassicaia'. Carlo Paoli adds, 'spring arrived early but without excess, summer started slowly and was only hot for 20 days and they started harvest mid-September for Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything was slow, calm and beautiful.' The 2013 is at the beginning of its drinking window and drinking beautifully now, but it still has a long time to go. - Susan Hulme MW, Decanter

98/100 - Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now. - James Suckling 

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.

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.
