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 is intensely saline, savory and energetic. Rosemary, sage, plums and black cherry notes meld into graphite, crushed rocks and a host of other more mineral-inflected nuances. Beautifully persistent and chiseled in the glass, the 2010 is ultimately all about energy. This is going to be a fascinating vintage to follow."
