Tasting Notes

With this classic and cooler vintage, Sassicaia has reached a level that no one else in Bolgheri has obtained yet. The nose is closed but precise, delicately perfumed with nuances of violet and peony, cherries and mulberries, minerality, purity and precision. The bouquet is already open, evolving constantly and delivering so much complexity and grace. Delicate and subtle in texture on the palate, it is lithe and precise, with great freshness. The silky and powdery tannic structure provide a lingering finish. This is a very touching wine, charismatic and energetic, a vintage that will sit amongst the very greatest from this iconic winery. Drink from 2023. Nicolas Clerc MS

Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
