96 Points James Suckling
The balance and beauty to this is impressive, offering sweet, ripe currants and flowers with some crushed-stone and dry-earth undertones. Full-bodied with soft, polished tannins and a long, creamy-textured finish. It’s polished, yet concentrated. Better after 2022, but already very seductive.
93-96 Points Antonio Galloni
The 2017 Sassicaia is dark, sensual and rich, which is a good thing, as the tannins – the result of a warm, dry year in which phenolic ripening was difficult to fully reach – are also quite powerful. I tasted the 2017 from an approximate blend from barrel, where the wines are still aging in separate lots. It will be interesting to see where things end up once the wine is in bottle.
