“Tasted from barrel, the 2014 Bolgheri Sassicaia is shaping up very nicely since I tasted it last year. In fact, it has made reassuring gains in terms of color density, aromatic definition and specifically textural richness. This wine will be released in 2017, but is scheduled to be bottled in November of this year (instead of January 2017) in order to allow it more time to flesh out and integrate in glass. The bouquet shows slightly rustic tones of tilled earth and spice that come on the heels of blackberry and dried cherry. The 2014 vintage is characterized by a late growing cycle. The last day of harvest was October 31. Despite the vintage challenges, primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation were executed without a hitch.” 92-94 points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate, July 2016
“I preview tasted 2014 last year and am pleased to report that the wine has come a very long way over the course of the past 12 months. It has fleshed out and has reached an impressive level of integration and harmony, despite initial fears. The 2014 vintage was challenging due to the cooler and humid nature of the growing season, but the wine in barrel now defeats the odds with an inspiring level of coherence.” Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate, June 2015
“Extremely aromatic with black currant, strawberry and cherry. Some rosemary. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a gorgeous finish. Bright acidity. It came from all the hillside vineyards. This shows lovely potential and balance. Delicate and fine. Much better than anticipated considering the cool and wet growing season in Tuscany.” 92-93 points, James Suckling, November 2016
