"This wine suffers the unlucky disadvantage of being placed after the stunning 1985 vintage in this tasting. The 1984 Sassicaia holds its own, although it is clearly a step removed. This effort shows more oak spice and tobacco spread generously over a leaner, more compact texture. Dark tar, licorice and autumnal aromas appear with cumin, saffron and baking spice. The wine delivers less overall volume and is moderately concentrated in terms of mouthfeel. However, it has maintained a fresh personality and does not suffer from the overt oxidation you get in some of the younger vintages from the 1990s. It should continue to hold for a few more solid years. Hail damage in 1984 reduced vineyard yields." - Monica Larner, robertparker.com (Apr 2017)
