Tasting Notes

Arguably Italy’s most famous and collectable wine, Sassicaia has an iconic reputation built on an incredible longevity and exceptional quality. The name Sassicaia translates as 'the place of many stones', and refers to the region’s gravel rich soil, similar to that of areas of Bordeaux which were an inspiration for the creation of this wine. Composed of a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, the first release of Sassicaia was released in 1971 and was greeted with immediate acclaim. Since then this 'Super Tuscan' wine has gone from strength to strength and is always in high demand. The 2008 is a classic release which displays elegance and complexity on the nose with beguiling notes of red fruits, smoke, herbs, nuts and discreet oak. Rich, silky and dense in the mouth with an incredible depth of flavour, beautifully layered delivery and ultra expressive character. Sassicaia 2008 will continue to improve over the next 25 years and beyond.

"This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It's the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015" - James Suckling, 97 points.
