Sassicaia 1/2 Btg 1996

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A well-structured Sass with plenty of blackberry and dried herb character. Full-bodied with plenty of ripe tannins and a currant bush and herb finish. Give it time to develop. Best after 2001. 13 000 cases made Wine Spectator.

From its first commercialization 40 years ago. at the wish of mario incisa della rocchetta. on the sassicaia label there appeared a family seal dating back to Medieval times representing the ideal testimony of the continuous love of the incisas for their lands.
