Sassicaia Magnum

Verdens mest berømte Toscana-vin 

Sassicaia rummer en flot, rød-lilla farve, der er så dyb, den næsten er blålig.

I næsen er der en symfoni af aromaer og du kan forvente noter af sødmefulde bær så som brombær, jordede toner af peber, cedertræ og tobak. Oplev en bred vifte af aromaer fra urter som eukalyptus, rosmarin, lavendel og salvie. 

Vinen har allerede nu i sin unge alder flot struktur og smagskompleksitet. Du kan fornemme det fantastiske spil mellem den vibrerende syre og de saltede tanniner. 

Sassicaia har kæmpe lagringspotentiale. Det handler oftest om, hvorvidt du har tålmodigheden til at vente med at nyde denne fremragende rødvin. Vent gerne 10 år - først der har vinen opnået sit højdepunkt.

Extremely captivating in the sensory profile, profound and slightly austere the Sassicaia 2018 shows complexity and tension in its aromatic mediterranean picture, the son of a splendid vintage in Bolgheri-Sassicaia. The scents of linden blend with notes of elderflower and coriander setting the primary scene, solid and performing. With the passing of the seconds in the glass the wine evolves showing the beauty of only a few thoroughbreds in its elegant vivacity and slightly snobbish scents of walnut husks, green tea leaves and cracked walnuts. The intriguing frame that makes up the tertiary soul of the layered wine alternates the opalescence of the perfectly controlled reduction with mediterranean herbs with notes of marjoram, origano and parsley. On the palate the wine is delicate and persuasive showing a perfect extraction of the poliphenolic components. The tannins are silky and companiable, fused with the natural acidity of the wine. The progressive sip closes without shyness or uncertainty with brilliance and concentration. It is precise and juicy with the grace of a young bordolese blend made up of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. Extraordinary now but the Sassicaia 2018 will be better from 2024 onwards.

All about radiance and finesse, this iconic Tuscan red has beguiling aromas of cedar, wild red berry, menthol and pipe tobacco that mingle with fragrant blue flowers. Made with 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, the focused, elegantly structured palate is vibrant and savory, delivering cassis, orange zest, licorice and a hint of coffee framed in taut, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it energized and balanced.

97+: This is a classic vintage of an Italian icon now celebrating its 50th vintage. The Tenuta San Guido 2018 Bolgheri Sassicaia lays out a familiar blueprint that borrows from the proven track record of this landmark estate that extends into the hills just beyond the Tyrrhenian shores of Tuscany. This vintage is crystalline and pure in its delivery, and if you are familiar with previous editions, it is impossible to mistake this wine for anything but Sassicaia.

Beautiful, serene aromas of sweet berries and wild flowers with light lavender and fresh sage. Really aromatic. A firm, silky red with medium to full body and ultra fine tannins that are polished and beautiful. Lots of blue fruit and blackberries follow through to a beautiful finish. Really tight and polished. Bright acidity. Will be lovely to drink in a few years. The 2017 and 2016 were about power, but the 2018 is about finesse and subtlety. Try after 2024.

Refined and complex, this red is all about finesse and restraint, starting out with floral and black currant flavors that build steadily on the palate, with olive, cedar, tobacco and spice notes adding detail as this lingers on the terrific finish. Needs five to seven years to fully emerge.

The 2018 Sassicaia is fabulous. Bright and beautifully poised, the 2018 opens with brilliant aromatics that make a strong first impression. Delicate and light on its feet, the 2018 is a regal wine that is going to need a number of years to come into its own. Sassicaia is the most finessed of Bolgheri’s top wines. That is very much the case in 2018 as well. I loved it. A cold winter led to a late spring and delayed start to the year. May and June saw some heat, but only moderate temperatures. Only July was truly warm, with minimal diurnal shifts. Cool winds arrived again in August, and temperatures dropped quickly, especially at night. Mid-August saw some rain. Harvest started on September 7 with the Franc and wrapped up on the 29th with the last of Cabernet Sauvignon. The year favored the estate’s oldest vineyards, those on hillside sites. The 2018 spent 19 months in oak, two-thirds new, a bit more new oak than the norm. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Franc, a bit less Franc than is often the case, as Franc suffered more under the conditions of the season.

The 2018 vintage was fresher than usual in Bolgheri, mainly due to a rainy spring which was challenging, but also following a cooler end to August. The higher vineyards on which Sassicaia could rely produced grapes with an outstanding quality of phenolics, benefitting from a useful fruit-set and mild September. The severe selection of the grapes - with a level of production similar to that of the dry 2017 - did the rest. Restrained red and black currant aromas are allied to aromatic herbs such as eucalyptus leaf and rosemary, completed by coffee bean, earthy tones and cedar. This is a wine focussed on fresh fruit, with a savoury citrus finish proving its depth. The tight-knit structure is firm with chalky yet ripe tannins and extremely fresh, natural and long acidity. More elegant than powerful, this 2018 is perfectly integrated with the Sassicaia style, full of tension. Not immediately ready to drink but promising stunning finesse.

98P+: Intense and bright dark ruby red color, vertical nose with recalls of blackberries, eucalyptus, hints of Mediterranean scrub, touches of pink pepper and taggiasca olive. The mouthfeel is taut, elegant, deep, enhanced by salty tannins and recalls of citrus and red fruits, very drinkable.
