Barrua Sassicaia Sardiniens! Yyy ¬48 --/l 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Wine Advocate review:<br/>The 2007 Sassicaia (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes onto the palate with masses of rich, opulent fruit that caress the palate with gorgeous length and a seamless beauty that is hard to fully capture. Dark wild cherries, plums, spices, minerals and herbs develop in the glass. This is an especially bold, perhaps slightly uncharacteristic Sassicaia in its extroverted personality, but it is beautiful all the same. The inner perfume and sweetness carries through the long finish, where the sheer weight and glycerol of the fruit leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006. While it may lack that wine's freshness, structure and potential longevity, the 2007 is immensely appealing today, and should drink beautifully pretty much out of the gate. That said, Sassicaia is always the most restrained of Bolgheri's heavy hitters. This is a superb

Almost a century later his great-grandson mario incisa della rocchetta would draw inspiration from these catalogues for his grafts of bordeaux vine cuttings. first on the family lands at the occhetta and. with the success that is known worldwide. on the land of bolgheri. which became part of the family possessions in 1930 on h is marriage to h is beloved Clarice della Gherardesca.

Dunkel-violett-schwarze Farbe. Gezügelt die Nase, schwarze Beeren, etwas Cassis, nobles Holz und leichte Rauch- sowie Minzetöne. Am Gaumen mit primär offener Frucht, fleischigem Charakter, typischen Cabernet Sauvignon- und Cabernet Franc-Aromen (Peperoni, Kräuter, weissem Pfeffer). Recht füllig, dicht gewobene Tannine und schöner Balance (Frucht, Säure und Holz).

Bright red with a pale rim. Still reticent nose hints at redcurrant, pomegranate, graphite and cedar. Softer and more approachable than usual for young Sassicaia, with fleshy, easygoing flavors of redcurrant, cassis, balsamic smoke and vanilla. A seamlessly ripe, broad and long wine, finishing with smooth, very peppery, balsamic tannins and a trace of alcoholic warmth. The acid spine is hidden by the glossy, ripe fruit, but there’s plenty of it here; in this respect, the 2007 Sassicaia is not unlike other vintages with similar growing seasons, and reminds me of the 1997 at the same stage of development. I still feel that this vintage of Sassicaia will be remembered for offering early accessibility and perhaps possessing a little less concentration and depth than some recent great releases such as 2001 and 2006. However, do not make the mistake of attributing this to a hot year: unlike in more sun-drenched parts of Tuscany, 2007 was not an excessively hot vintage here. I also noted less bottle variation when I tasted this wine three times in November than I did in my tastings between April and August of 2010.

Very enticing aromas of spices, meat and berries. Full-bodied and juicy, soft and velvety, with a long, succulent finish. Best after 2011.

Shows its class. Loaded with fruit. Rich yet balanced, with lots of jammy and plummy character. Full-bodied, with round tannins and a silky finish. Exotic. Sass made excellent wine again in a less than easy year. Best after 2006.

Refined and elegant, this is right in step with the reserve of the vintage. Blackberry, plum, cassis and mineral flavors play out with subtle oak spice notes on the finish, where this flexes some muscle. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2025.

The 2008 Sassicaia is a rich, deep wine imbued with notable class in its black cherries, plums, grilled herbs, minerals and smoke. The 2008 is a decidedly buttoned-up, firm Sassicaia that is currently holding back much of its potential, unlike the 2006 and 2007, both of which were far more obvious wines. Readers who can afford to wait will be treated to a sublime wine once this settles down in bottle. Muscular, firm tannins frame the exquisite finish in this dark, implosive Sassicaia. The 2008 Sassicaia is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. The wine spent 24 months in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2018ndash;2038.
