Sassicaia R. Bulgheri DOC Bílé Víno 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all-time great recent<br/>vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred. The year started off very warm but<br/>by August evening temperatures had moderated, leaving the fruit with a stunning<br/>combination of ripeness, perfume, acidity and tannin. The wine is simply<br/>glorious, that's all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into<br/>smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine<br/>opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky finish lasts an eternity, as<br/>waves of fruit caress the tannins with breathtaking elegance. Everything<br/>is in the right place in this magical Sassicaia. This is one for the<br/>ages. In a word: Awesome. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2031. <br/>(Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate - Aug-2009)

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).
