Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
“Elegant” is the defining word for the ’08 Sassicaia. With its lithe lines and aristocratic profile, it’s a graceful evocation of this important Super-Tuscan wine. Frutti di bosco, cypress, earth, and spice explode on the palate, but the wine’s balletic balance between mouth-watering acidity and velvety tannins works in tension to create an exquisite drinking experience. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon touched with fifteen-percent Cabernet Franc, Sassicaia is the Bordeaux-style blend that Mario Incisa della Rocchetta envisioned coming from little-known Bolgheri all those decades ago.
