One of the greatest Italian wines made in the Bolgheri area of Tuscany where the terroir is similar to the one in Bordeaux. This 2013 Sassicaia is shaping up to be an epic rendition of this celebrated wine. You get a clear sense of the quality of fruit with your first twirl of the glass. Even at this young stage, the wine shows impressive intensity and elegance. It boasts dark fruit nuances with bold cherry and blackberry that will gain focus and traction with time. Oak notes of vanilla and cinnamon are beginning to show their first signs of mellow integration. This cool but classic vintage has enhanced aromas, acidity and all the qualities that lead to healthy longevity. Grapes: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.
