Sassicaia, a true legend since 1968
A deep and intense ruby colour. On the nose its elegance and gentleness are outstanding, featuring a bouquet of sweet ripe black fruits (blueberries, blackcurrants, cassis liqueur) and Mediterranean herbs such as bay, juniper and myrtle. Following on, its spicy hints and balsamic notes remain with us for a long time.
On the palate it appears powerful and concentrated, with the ripe black fruit persisting and complemented by other touches of chocolate, vanilla, quinine and bracken, in a combination which imparts a pleasant vegetal freshness overall. A wine of noble elegance, exquisite balance, with fine tannins seeming to caress the palate. Without a doubt, the fragrance of the Bolgheri and the magic of its terroir are encapsulated in a bottle of Sassicaia.
An excellent choice if you decide to pair it up with elaborate game dishes, especially wild boar.

Sassicaia has long been 1 of my 2 favourite wines (Along with Solaia), but I have a suspicion that the mafia have been tampering with it , just as they did with extra virgin olive oil , so subsequently, there are many fake bottles about. I have had several bottles that just don't taste or smell like Sassicaia. When you remove the cork on a genuine bottle the wonderful intense aroma hits your nostrils immediately and the taste is unique and sublime.by: Charles (23/09/2017) - Vintage 2014
Surprisingly ready to drink already
But don't try to make the bottle last all evening - it oxidizes fast. We'll keep the other bottle a few more years.by: Alessandrobuffoni@yahoo.it (17/04/2017) - Vintage 2014
Juste un des meuilleurs vins au monde. Toute la force de la Toscane avec la finesse des arômes qu'on retrouve
