What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish.
..rich, deep wine imbued with notable class in its black cherries, plums, grilled herbs, minerals & smoke. The 2008 is a decidedly buttoned-up, firm Sassicaia...Muscular, firm tannins frame the exquisite finish...
Refined and elegant, this is right in step with the reserve of the vintage. Blackberry, plum, cassis and mineral flavors play out with subtle oak spice notes on the finish, where this flexes some muscle.
Really classy stuff. Great balance. Very grown-up and sophisticated. Very dry and restrained and different from most.
