Chris Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “WOW…what a wine! The nose alone transports you to the Bolgheri coastline, and the bouquet is among the most pronounced we have experienced in this wine. The slightly cooler and more classic 2018 vintage has presented a more aromatic and refined expression, and in contrast to the 2017s that offered more stewed fruit nuances, there is more Burgundian sensibility to the wine, which captures the classic Sassicaia style with its signature herbaceous and briny undertones. On the palate, there is explosive and generous fruit, yet the wine remains so light on its feet. It has the juiciness to be a crowd pleaser and the depth and precision that will keep wine collectors digging into the glass for more nuances. The beauty of this wine comes with an hour of aeration as it keeps evolving in the glass. Watch for the silky texture and energetic spine. Expect to find notes wild berries, cherries, currants, black olives, spice, herbs, tar, and salinity. If you like refined, and understated Super Tuscans of finesse, look no further. This is easily one of the finest, classic expressions in Guidalberto’s twenty-year career."

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: For IWM, it is a welcomed departure from the warmer vintages of 2015 and 2017, and even the more powerful and structured year of 2016! The reality is Sassicaia makes a unique and exceptional wine in any vintage – Mother Nature dictates the style of the release, not the cellar. In 2018, we got just that, a classic and refined Sassicaia from a cooler and long growing season with characteristics that recall some of the glories of 2004. The Cabernet Sauvignon, and especially “the grapes from the older vines on the highest hills in Castiglioncello di Bolgheri, reached a perfect balance in terms of ripeness.” For IWM, the results were apparent with the earlier release of the sibling Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto and we screamed about how refined the younger sibling was from 2018. Well, the media has echoed these opinions and are calling the year “classic,” further stating that this is “textbook Sassicaia.” more info
