The 2016 Bolgheri Sassicaia is a wine of soaring achievement. Scoring 100 Parker points, Bolgheri Sassicaia's 2016 vintage is a true showstopper. This wine is chiselled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine's tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavours. A true benchmark for Italian red wines.

Einzigartiger Rotwein aus Italien. Er hat einen sehr fruchtigen Geschmack mit einem langanhaltenden Nachgeschmack. Dieser toskanische Rotwein passt perfekt zu Risotto oder Fleischgerichten.

Reviews of other vintages of Sassicaia 201602013020171

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.
