Deep, bright red-ruby. Aromas of ripe red cherry, dark plum and kirsch are complicated by sexy woodsmoke, eucalyptus and bay leaf. Silky and rather lush, with considerable sweetness and creaminess to its ripe, sweet flavours of cassis, blackberry j... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

The “terroir” of Bolgheri, and especially its proximity to the sea, the particular light, and the microclimate, are definetly favourable to Cabernet. Once again, these elements allowed the birth of a great wine, even in a vintage which was not so impressive for the rest of Tuscany. It is a characteristic of Sassicaia to expect great results even in these less celebrated vintages. And this tendency was even more reinforced in the last decade. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits. Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins read more... on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.
