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."
