    "Sassicaia" Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2017

    Enorm vielschichtig im Bouquet: Wir entdecken Cassis, Holunderbeeren, Herzkirschen und florale sowie mineralisch-erdige Noten. Im Mund fest, präzise und dennoch höchst elegant und balsamisch, mit sehr viel Saftigkeit und einem hochfeinen Tannin ausgestattet, welches bereits in seinen jungen Jahren unwiderstehlich ist. Wir haben selten einen Wein genossen, der so dicht und voll ist und zugleich über eine Balance verführt, die ihn einzigartig macht. Weitere Flaschenreife wird unweigerlich belohnt, wenngleich eine nochmalige Steigerung kaum vorstellbar scheint. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Mit diesem Wein begann vor mehr als 50 Jahren der Erfolgszug internationaler Rebsorten in Bolgheri: Die Familie Incisa della Rocchetta erkannte das Potenzial der Bordelaiser Rebsorten und schuf diesen Monolithen der italienischen Weinkultur. Bis heute wird er nahezu unverändert und vorwiegend aus Cabernet Franc produziert: einnehmende Nase nach frischem Steinobst, Wacholder und Tabak; der Auftakt geschliffen, die Gerbstoffe feinkörnig und frisch, belebende Säure, überaus komplexes Finale auf Noten von roten Früchte und Gewürzen. Stets eine der elegantesten Interpretationen des Terroirs." Vinum

    "The 2017 Sassicaia is a fascinating wine that symbolizes a never-ending tug-of-war between vintner and vintage. The question is who comes out on top? In this case, my money is on the vintner. The 2017 vintage, characterized by scorching heat and drought across much of Italy, was not an easy one. This Sassicaia represents 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc, with most of the fruit coming from the Tenuta's historic vineyards Castiglioncello, Quercione and Doccino. These plots are all located on the back hill of Bolgheri at slightly higher elevations where they enjoy cooler nighttime temperatures. Old vines also have a deeper root system that is key to braving dry and hot summers. You can absolutely taste those choices here thanks to the wine's aromatic profile that offers more variety-driven green highlights of wild berry, forest floor and bramble than I would have expected. With time, as the wine takes on more air in the glass, you get a hint of summer plum or cherry cough drop, and this, to my surprise, is the only subtle reminder of the hot vintage encountered. I found the aromas here to be authentically "Tuscan" in character, more so than other vintages, with balsamic and Mediterranean elements that borrow directly from the Sangiovese playbook. The decision to use more neutral oak favors the reduction of oxygen and softens the tannic profile. Although the wine does end with a hint of bitterness, it took on noticeably more volume and soft richness the longer I kept my sample in the glass." Robert Parker

    "A taut, densely wrought red, with black currant, black cherry, iron, wild herb and spice flavors matched to the elegant frame and restrained character. Balanced and long, this has a distinctly Old World feel and looks set to unravel its complex facets slowly." Wine Spectator

    "The 2017 Sassicaia is dark, sensual and rich, which is a good thing, as the tannins - the result of a warm, dry year in which phenolic ripening was difficult to fully reach - are also quite powerful. I tasted the 2017 from an approximate blend from barrel, where the wines are still aging in separate lots. It will be interesting to see where things end up once the wine is in bottle." Vinous

    "The balance and beauty to this is impressive, offering sweet, ripe currants and flowers with some crushed-stone and dry-earth undertones. Full-bodied with soft, polished tannins and a long, creamy-textured finish. It’s polished, yet concentrated. Better after 2022, but already very seductive." James Suckling

    "Aromas of exotic spice, baked plum and French oak mingle with camphor and blue flower on the nose. This boasts extraordinary elegance and freshness despite the hot vintage, delivering flavors of juicy Marasca cherry, spiced blueberry, tobacco and licorice. Velvety, fine-grained tannins provide support while coffee and crushed mint linger on the finish." Wine Enthusiast
