Coming from a cooler vintage this Sassicaia exhibits classic notes of Cabernet in it's herbaceous nose which features green herbs as well as crisp cassis fruit. Lean and focused in the mouth with a rich savory, earthy core.


Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso. Bastianich & Lynch (Vino Italiano: The Regional Wines of Italy): The one that started it all, still the most elegant of the super-Tuscans... The Sassicaia wine is typically leaner and more angular than Ornellaia, thanks in some part to a telltale does of cabernet franc that lends the aroma a slightly peppery quality... the sweet cassis-scented fruit of cabernet sauvignon is wrapped in a wooly blanket of tannin... a tightly coiled spring not yet ready to release its potential energy. As a young wine, this tight, tannic beauty needs a steak or a braise to open it up, although the better course of action is to lay it down and let the secondary aromas of dried cherry, roses, and saddle leather come to the fore.
