Tasting Notes

(85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc)The wine is deep in colour with subtle notes of blackcurrant and vanilla on the nose. On the palate intense cassis flavours and precise mineral qualities dominate - ripe, fine grained tannins and firm acidity framework the wine. Poised, very long and elegant. Drink from 2014 but will develop further over the next 20 years +. World class - this is a brilliant Sassicaia.

Reviews & Scores

Shows aromas of chocolate, currant and blackberry, with a hint of Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with firm, velvety tannins and a long finish. Racy and very well-structured. Builds on the palate. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012. Wine Spectator

The 2017 vintage...

As ever, beautifully dissolved oak and vanilla nuances merge with a haunting mineral quality. The core of acidity is ripe and assertive - lifting the cassis fruit emphasis and giving...
