External Reviews for Sassicaia Private Cellar
The 2010 Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia brings back some of the brambly rosemary and wild Mediterranean brush that was missing in 2009. This will greatly appeal to enthusiasts of Sassicaia’s trademark elegance. The wine shows extreme purity that brings its many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and Oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine mostly certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balance manner it evolves in the glass: It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. This is the harbinger of cellar longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2018–2040.
This vintage of Sassicaia is unabashedly green, shooting like an arrow of youthful vigor through all the succulent fruit. That frisky tartness will convert to complexity as the wine ages. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of satisfaction in the wine right now, in its graceful weave of satin textures, cool sour cherry fruit, floral scents and the flash of oak. There’s a reason Sassacaia is the benchmark against which all other Tuscan plantings of cabernet sauvignon are measured, as it presents those varieties in a distinctive, age-worthy and deeply Tuscan way.
Dunkelviolettes Schwarzrot; aristokratisch nobel die Nase; schwarze Beeren, etwas Cassis, Edelhölzer und leichte Rauch- sowie Minztöne. Im Gaumen mit offener Frucht, typischen Cabernet Sauvignon- und Cabernet Franc-Aromen (Peperoni, Kräuter, weisser Pfeffer). Recht füllig, dicht gewobene Tannine. Beeindruckend die elegante Balance zwischen Frucht, Säure und Holz.
2010 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri - Italie - Region: Toscane - Apellation: Toscane - Cabernet Sauvignon blend - 750 ml.
Cedar, sandalwood and spice notes lead off, with cherry, currant and rhubarb flavors underneath. Linear in profile, with a firm base of tight-grained tannins, this lingers beautifully on the finish. Persistent from beginning to end, this just needs time to expand. Best from 2016 through 2027.
This supremely elegant and age-worthy Sassicaia opens with an intense bouquet of black cherry, Mediterranean herbs, blue flower, cedar and leather aromas. Powerful but graceful, the palate delivers a vibrant core of black cherry accented with white pepper, mineral and balsamic notes alongside youthful but polished tannins and vibrant acidity. It’s not as exuberant as some of its counterparts, but it may outlive all the other Bolgheri 2010s. Drink 2018–2040.
