Tasting Notes & Reviews

~ 97 Pts VINOUS The 2020 Sassicaia is a bold rapturous wine. Dark fleshy and expansive on the palate the 2020 offers up scents of blackberry jam gravel spice new leather licorice and cr?me de cassis. Potent tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Sassicaia is never a huge wine the 2020 does seem to have an extra dimension of textural intensity. It's an intensity that is hugely appealing. Estate Manager Carlo Paoli describes 2020 as a year with a long rainy winter and a cold spring. "Temperatures warmed up in the middle of June" he explained. "July was very hot but heat moderated in August. Even so it was a year in which ripeness moved quickly as opposed to 2021 when ripeness was more gradual. We picked the entire estate in 22 days instead of the 29-30 that is more typical." The 2020 spent 15-18 days on the skins followed by 25 months in French oak 50% new. Production is down about 30% because of selection in the vineyard. ~ 97 Pts JAMES SUCKLING A very perfumed Sassicaia on the nose with forest floor, citrus and deep dark fruits. Blackcurrants. Cedar and black tea. Some balsamic. Pine needles. Full and very succulent. Really long, structured and complete. Tangy and energetic with a linear line of fresh tannins and acidity. Very Sassicaia throughout. 85% cabernet sauvignon and the rest is cabernet franc. Very attractive now in a youthful and vibrant way, but this will be better in three to four years. Try after 2027. ~ 97 Pts DECANTER
