A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, with 24 months in French oak barrels, this is an incredibly refined and complex wine with an enveloping bouquet of sweet red cherries, dark berry fruits and wild herbs. The palate is multi-layered and intense with an abundance of wild berry and cassis fruits with darker plum and black cherry flavours in the background and a refined mineral note on the long finish. Smooth, integrated tannins and an elegant, refreshing acidity provide perfect balance. Extremely harmonious with excellent definition, similar to the classic 2008 in style, it has magnificent ageing potential. Drink from 2019 ? 2040.
Reviews & Scores
The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it's an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass. The red is very aromatic with currant, dried berry, cocoa bean, and hints of wood. It's full-bodied, with intense yet very polished tannins and a long finish. It's very refined and beautiful with a tangy finish. The Cabernet Franc comes through here at the finish. Lively. Hard not to drink now.
