Sassicaia, 2014

Tasting Note:

A typical Sassicaia blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. Open, aromatic and charming. Beautifully balanced, delicate, sweet red fruits of the forest flavours mixed with fresh cassis, with just a whisp of mineral, herb and stone. So juicy and harmonious with a gentle but harnessing grip. Bright, alluring and so drinkable. Faithful to the pure, elegant style that is characteristic of Sassicaia. From vineyards situated between 100 to 400 metres above sea level planted on stony limestone and clay soils. Ageing has been for 24 months in a third new French oak, with 6 months of bottling ageing prior to release.
