Elegant and classy with great length, the 2012 has an expansive bouquet of crushed blackberries and dark cherries which opens to reveal complex notes of delicate spices and wild herbs which combine beautifully. Gorgeously refined and textured on the palate with lovely weight of dark berry fruits balanced by a racy mineral quality and an elegant freshness, this harmonious and multi-layered wine will develop in length and complexity over thirty years or more. Drink from 2018?2040.
Reviews & Scores
One of Italy?s most iconic bottlings, the 2012 Sassicaia is drop-dead gorgeous. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, it boasts sensations of blue flowers, cedar, juicy red currants, ripe raspberries, white pepper and a balsamic note. Structured, radiant and loaded with finesse, it delivers everything you?d expect from a world-class wine and more. Drink 2018?2032. Score: 99 Points Kerin O?Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
