External Reviews for Sassicaia Private Cellar
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.
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.
2010 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri - Italie - Region: Toscane - Apellation: Toscane - Cabernet Sauvignon blend - 750 ml.
The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it s an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass. The red is very aromatic with currant dried berry coco bean and hints of wood. It s full-bodied with intense yet very polished tannins and a long finish. It s very refined and beautiful with a tangy finish. The Cabernet Franc comes through here at the finish. Lively. Hard not to drink now ... Stylistically the 2010 reminds me of something like 2001 or 1979. These are soft and silky wines with friendly fruit and a juicy fresh and fruity style. The 1979 is still drinking extremely well today. And the 2001 is just starting to drink well now... James Suckling.
2010 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri Magnum - Italie - Region: Toscane - Apellation: Toscane - Cabernet Sauvignon blend - 1500 ml.
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.
