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.

We had it with snacks. I drank it with a connoisseur of wines.
This wine is of a very attractive cherry colour. Fantastic berry aromas. The 2003 taste was evident in the mouth.

Aromas of nuts. Strong flavour like strawberry candy.
Sassicaia is good but a little acid.

Reviews of other vintages of Sassicaia 2003201320102008


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.

Just drunk. Nothing to say, wine perfect with no defects.
Not worth the cost, however. Absolutely not good value for money. With that money you can buy other wines. Price is right for me 60 euro.
