    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lovely, subtle yet complex aromas of currants, sage and green olives lead to a full-bodied red with a solid core of fruit and well-integrated tannins. Still very reserved on the finish, but those who are patient should be rewarded.

    Wine Spectator

    Bright, full red-ruby with a hint of amber at the rim. Nuanced, scented nose combines raspberry, blackcurrant, tobacco, warm stones and an intriguing citrussy nuance. Suave, rich and complex, with creamy, concentrated red plum, tobacco and mocha flavors of considerable sweetness. Finishes savory and minerally, with smooth tannins and lovely lingering perfume. A very big success for what has turned out to be an excellent vintage in the Bolgheri area.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 1998 Sassicaia exhibits a dense ruby color with purple highlights and a classic nose of cedar, spice box, licorice, and black currants. Medium-bodied, powerful, extracted, and rich as well as elegant and well-balanced, it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should evolve for 15-20.
