...the exciting 2013 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 2013 vintage promises greatness. Drink till 2040.

What an iconic wine. One could even say it was the catalyst in changing the Italian wine scene. Unfortunately I don't think this wine was showing its best today so a little bit hard to rate but none the less... Blackcurrant, raspberry, raspberry leaf, herbaceous and a smidge of oak. Impressively structured wine as one would expect, but wasn't forbidding.

One of my favorite super Tuscans with sweet dark fruit intermingled with hints of spices, herbs, earthiness and smoke in a full-body.

Complete infanticide. very powerful nose. Soft round tannins and incredibly long finish.
