Sassicaia is the only wine from a single wine estate in Italy to have its own DOC. Bolgheri, on the Tuscan coast just south of Livorno, is one of Italy's most prestigious vineyard areas.
Sassicaia 2010, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, has an intense, deep ruby red color. Elegance is its main feature and this
combined with good acidity gives it a long lasting taste. Sweet and harmonious
tannins, as well as an intense bouquet complete this amazing vintage.

"The 2010 Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia brings back some of the brambly rosemary and wild Mediterranean brush that was missing in 2009. This will greatly appeal to enthusiasts of Sassicaia’s trademark elegance. The wine shows extreme purity that brings its many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and Oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine mostly certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balance manner it evolves in the glass: It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. This is the harbinger of cellar longevity."

"The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it's an outstanding bottle. I think that people are
going to love this newest Sass. The red is very aromatic with currant, dried berry, coco bean,
and hints of wood. It's full-bodied, with intense yet very polished tannins and a long finish.
It's very refined and beautiful, with a tangy finish. The Cabernet Franc comes through here at
the finish. Lively. Hard not to drink now...Stylistically, the 2010 reminds me of something like
2001 or 1979. These are soft and silky wines with friendly fruit and a juicy, fresh and fruity
