This is the wine that all other Super Tuscans are based on and compared to and that made Bolgheri, on the coast of Tuscany, one of the most famous wine regions in the world today.  Sassicaia 2011, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, comes from the region's best vintage in years.  Perhaps Italy's greatest wine, order the classic new vintage while we have it available. previous vintage 97 Points Robert Parker:  "Tasted from barrel, the exciting Bolgheri Sassicaia is shaping up to be an epic rendition of this celebrated wine. You get a clear sense of the quality of fruit with your first twirl of the glass. Even at this young stage, the wine shows impressive intensity and elegance. It boasts dark fruit nuances with bold cherry and blackberry that will gain focus and traction with time. Oak notes of vanilla and cinnamon are beginning to show their first signs of mellow integration. This was a cool but classic vintage that saw enhanced aromas, acidity and all the qualities that lead to healthy longevity. The vintage promises greatness....

Oh baby and I don’t mean maybe - winner winner chicken dinner - with the WNH gang on a Sunday night Italian IGT tasting via super Tuscan - this wine became commercially available wine in 1968 and since then it has risen quickly in fame - the 2015 as well as the 2016 are getting ridiculous scores from critics - like Bordeaux first growth scores - 97 plus from all - yes it a baby and as such I double decanted - i have more and I have much older vintages so this was my attempt to see what the hype was Well the hype is real - patience is rewarded - 4 hour decant and every glass got better - in hour six this was incredible and went from a 9.5 to the 9.7 I gave it - 85% cab with 15% CF - reminds me of a great Bordeaux or great Napa blend like Continuum maybe a 2010 vintage as far as taste but leaves there and goes further - chiseled tannins integrated in a rich supple deep ruby color pushing red blue and black fruits elegantly- this could easily go another 30-40 years - and it will get better - in ten years this is 9.8 or higher - my face is broken from smiling so much!

Began in 1944, Mario Incisa acquired Cab Sauv & Franc vine cuttings, planted them on San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Beautiful fruit & spice aromas. Berry fruit flavors with spice, leather and cacao, powerhouse. Fine tannins allows current enjoyment. Lingering, silky smooth ending with slight earthy coffee character. Question how well the ‘15 will age? It’s great, but $200, I’ll pass. Tasting Sample.

Выпито 27.03.20 в Место про еду с Милановичем. Достойная Sassicaia 2015 года. Вино задавило ужин. Очень бархатное и нежное. Мое. Не зря положил ящик на закладку. Боюсь, не долежит.

2015 yielded a rich bottling. Dark ripe fruit, mint luscious tannins.
