95 points, “The 2007 Sassicaia explodes onto the palate with masses of rich, opulent fruit that caress the palate with gorgeous length and a seamless beauty that is hard to fully capture… The 2007 is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous
18 points, “So Claret-like! Quite delicate. Fresh and really rather elegant. A very sophisticated wine.” – Jancis Robinson
Respected wine critic Jancis Robinson went as far as to describe this “aristocratic” red as being “Lafite-like” – high praise indeed. A wine of two halves; exuberantly perfumed with powerful cherry, plum, cassis, spice, tobacco and leather, but then on the palate it’s just so refined, polished and Bordeaux-esque. A truly unique expression of the ever-popular Sassicaia.
What can you say about the legend that is Sassicaia? Widely acknowledged to be the first Super Tuscan and a catalyst for an Italian winemaking revolution. A wine so controversial it was relegated to a table wine by the restrictive DOC regulations, only to prove so successful and highly revered that it was granted its own DOC Bolgheri Sassicaia – the only single estate to receive this privilege. The first Italian wine to receive 100 points from Robert Parker, a red that regularly beats Bordeaux’s First Growths in blind tasting competitions and one that prompted Jancis Robinson to ask herself “Does my working life get any better than this?” after sampling several vintages from magnum, before concluding “No it does not.” That’s why Decanter Magazine describes it as: “One of the greatest wines in the world, famed and feted for its timeless elegance, balance and longevity.”
