Description

Sassicaia is today one of the most sought-after fine wines in the world. This is largely because of the vision, energy and drive of proprietor Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. Sassicaia's first vintage was released to universal acclaim in 1968. Sassicaia is now widely accepted as one of the world`s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon wines and made history recently, being the first single wine to be granted its own DOC.

Aroma

What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, liquorice, plums, graphite too. Subtle and complex.

Tasting Notes

"Big, rich and opulent. Layers of fruit saturate the palate as the 2009 explodes from the glass with a heady melange of dark berries, plums, menthol, liquorice and new leather." Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate

Palate

This tightly knit, dense red is full of black currant, cherry, herb and spice flavours. The tannins are aggressive now, but this is long and detailed, with an herb and spice aftertaste. A classy wine.
