After a very early malolactic fermentation, the 24 months aging in French oak barrels started towards the end of November. After this period, the wine spent 6 more months in bottles before being put on the market, obtaining, as a result, a wine acclaimed by critics and that, since 1968 (the year that it officially came out for sale), has pleased demanding palates and even, aristocratic ones, so much so that it is well accepted always with a welcome worthy of a Premier Cru de Bordeaux.

4 /5

Il Sassicaia si presenta con un colore rubino intenso, concentrato e profondo. Il profumo è complesso con sentori di frutti rossi e molto elegante. Il sapore è potente, concentrato, di grande spessore, con tannini dolci ed equilibrati. In bocca è ricco e denso ma contemporaneamente armonico ed elegante. Decisamente lunga la persistenza, con uno spessore organolettico di grande importanza e con un corredo polifenolico che assicurano a questo vino una straordinaria longevità.

Op een diner met een paar vrienden hebben wij het geproefd en het smaakte me.
Goede rood en dakpan randen van kleur. Geur van viooltjes en zoethout. Deze 2003 is een beetje vettig in de mond.
Het best van het voedsel.

Este Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia não se pode encontrar em nenhum supermercado.
Tom vermelho bordeaux. Cheira muito bem a rosas brancas. Leve mas com um travo prolongado.

4/5

It is a characteristic of Sassicaia to expect great results even in these less celebrated vintages. And this tendency was even more reinforced in the last decade. Sassicaia is intense, concentrated and deep ruby colour. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits.
Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.
