Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The child of a warm vintage, the ’09 Sassicaia is deceptively approachable, intense, and delicious; however approachable it seems, this wine in it for the long haul--even more, it’s a piece of history because the ’09 vintage marks the end of an era, the year that consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis retired. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon touched with fifteen-percent Cabernet Franc, Sassicaia is the Bordeaux-style blend that Mario Incisa della Rochetta envisioned coming from little-known Bolgheri all those decades ago. Sassicaia is a wine famous for its elegance, vibrancy, and rich bouquet, and it’s renowned for its sweet frutti di bosco and pointed cypress and herbs, elements it holds in a temptingly firm tannic grip. Sassicaia is always one of IWM’s most in-demand wines, but a year like this one pushes even that stratospheric envelope.
