Beskrivelse

Sassicaia DOC

Vinen har en mættet rød-lilla, næsten blålig farve og en dyb duft af modne solbær, brombær, cedertræ, tobak og ristede fadnoter som integreres fuldt ud med alderen. I munden vil man opleve et svimlende koncentrations- og ekstraktionsniveau med tæt, kølig og mørk bærfrugt og fine polerede tanniner. Vinen har nok modenhed til at kunne nydes allerede som ung og samtidig nok syre, struktur og ekstrakt til at kunne gemmes i mindst et par årtier. Forvent dog ikke at en Sassicaia når sit højdepunkt før omkring 10 års lagring under de rette forhold. En kolossal vin som bør opleves mindst én gang i livet.

Anmeldelser

  • 98P - James Suckling 2018:" Love the aromas to this young red with blackcurrants, sage, cinnamon and five-spice character. Changes all the time. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a ripe and rich tannin backbone that gives form and beauty to the ripe and beautiful fruit. Tight and very long. Approachable now but will reward more in five to six years. A classic Sassicaia."
  • 97P - Wine Spectator maj 2018: "Rich and concentrated, this red features black currant, blackberry, violet, mineral and spice flavors. Dense yet lively, structured yet impeccably balanced, with vibrant acidity driving the long, fruit-filled aftertaste. The oak is beautifully integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2042. "
  • 95P - Vinous.com 10.04.2018:" The 2015 Sassicaia is powerful and dense in the glass, with a level of concentration that is unusual. In most vintages, Sassicaia is a wine of restraint. Although the 2015 is by no means overdone, it exudes richness and textural resonance in all of its dimensions. A rush of black cherry, mocha, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and underbrush builds as this powerful, creamy wine shows off its muscle. 2022 - 2040"
  • 98P - International Wine Report marts 2018: "The 2015 Sassicaia is utterly fascinating, and may be the finest vintage I have tasted in the past decade. It begins to open with simply striking aromatics of ripe red and dark fruits, which come together with spices, tobacco, floral and graphite all taking shape. On the palate this shows remarkable overall purity, focus and balance with a gorgeous velvety texture and beautifully polished tannins making it extreamly captivating, even at this youthful age. It displays remarkable precision and concentration, with fantastic underlying acidity providing wonderful lift, as well as a lovely sense of freshness leading up to the long, polished finish. This is already absolutely stunning, and it also possesses the characeristics, as well as the track record to age gracefully for years to come. This has the potential to become one of the all-time great vintages for this iconic wine."
  • 97P - Robert Parker Issue 235 march 2018:" Having followed this wine's evolution in barrel for the past few years, it is an honor to evaluate the final product. This Sassicaia has blossomed since my previous encounters with it as a young, awkward adolescent. The long- awaited 2015 Bolgheri Sassicaia represents a tremendous effort that comes together with seamless precision and focus. This is a confident and proud red wine from Tuscany. Starting with the primary material at hand, you sense the quality of fruit thanks to the wine's beautifully dark appearance and the rich texture it offers to the palate. The acidity is integrated, but more freshness still would have been welcomed in my view (and would also contribute to its longevity). The bouquet is amplified both in terms of volume and length. Its playlist includes dark berry fruit, spice, leather, licorice and roasted coffee bean. Yet, the mouthfeel is extremely graceful and silky. The wine's undisputed pedigree is showcased on the palate. It should also be noted that this edition of Sassicaia feels more ready and open to me. It will age and evolve beautifully, but the 2015 Sassicaia can also be enjoyed in the medium-term. This wine is all about the here and 2020 - 2045"
  • 98P - Decanter:" The first Cabernet grapes were picked on September 10th under perfect conditions, with yields a little lower than average. As is usual at Tenuta San Guido, the fruit for Sassicaia was gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel using natural yeasts. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine spent two years in French oak prior to bottling. This is certainly an exceptional Sassicaia, with a sumptuous nose of ripe, creamy black and red fruit with cedar and spice notes. The colour is by no means dark (as is often the case with Sassicaia), and the impression on the palate is one of controlled power underpinned by gorgeous sweetness and flowing elegance. This is a very confident wine with real authority and presence, beginning with a magnificent attack of rich cassis and ripe griotte cherry followed by cigar box and leather notes, and a long finish of savoury bay leaf and minerals. It's deceptively structured, the tannins wonderfully ripe, creamy and finely textured, while the juicy acidity also suggests that this wine has a very long life ahead of it. This 2015 exhibits everything that you'd want from Sassicaia - and more - because of its winning combination of winemaking savoir- faire, world-class terroir, old vine fruit, and an outstanding vintage. It is unarguably stunning. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050"
  • 97-98P - James Suckling oktober 2016: "Bright and aromatic with black currant, orange peel, flower, and hot stone. Full-bodied, dense and rich yet always refined and beautiful. Incredible harmony already. Wait and see. Wonderful barrel sample to follow. Tasted at the winery."

Producent beskrivelse

Sassicaia - italiens bedste og mest berømte vin

Italiens bedste og mest berømte rødvin og pionér inden for italiensk vinfremstilling, også kaldet Italiens Latour. Som den første italienske vin fik Sassicaia høstet 100 point i Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, og vinen har fået de ellers svært opnåelige tre glas i Gambero Rosso ikke færre end 21 gange. Kort sagt er Sassicaia en levende legende. Sassicaia laves på vingården Tenuta San Guido i Bolgheri ved Toscanas kyst, og her laver man også vingårdens 2 andre vine Guidalberto og Le Difese.

Langsigtet pionerarbejde skabte verdensklasse

Grundlæggeren Mario Incisa della Rochetta begyndte i 40'erne at plante Cabernet Sauvignon og Cabernet Franc med Bordeaux' berømte 1. Cru'er som forbilleder, idet han mente at jordbunden på Tenuta San Guido havde mange fælles træk med jordbunden i Bordeaux, især i Gravesområdet. Mario var også den første i Toscana, der brugte nye franske egetræsfade, hvilket var banebrydende i Italien. Vinen forblev dog en hemmelighed indtil 1968, hvor Mario vurderede, at nu var vinen klar til at blive sendt på markedet. Vinen blev døbt Sassicaia, hvilket på den lokale toscanske dialekt betyder sandet og gruset jordbund. Den blev fra starten meget omtalt og en omgående succes i Italien og var den første italienske kvalitetsvin, der brød igennem på eksportmarkederne. I dag betragtes Sassicaia som den første Supertoscaner og faderen til alle italienske Cabernetbaserede vine.

100 point fra Robert Parker og egen appellation

Sassicaia var den første italienske vin der med årgang 1985 fik 100 point af Robert Parker og fra da af indtrådte vinen på den internationale vinscene, som Italiens bedste, et investeringsobjekt på lige fod med Château Latour, Château Lafite-Rothschild og de andre 1. Cru'er i Bordeaux. Marios drøm blev til virkelighed. Succesen blev også anerkendt af den italienske stat, som har tildelt Sassicaia sin egen appellation: Bolgheri Sassicaia D.O.C., hvilket er enestående. I dag ledes vingården af Niccolò Incisa della Rochetta, som med fuld respekt for traditionerne, har skabt 2 nye vine: Le Difese og Guidalberto.

Tenuta San Guidos 3 vine

Tenuta San Guido laver i dag 3 vine:

  • Sassicaia: 85% Cabernet Sauvigon og 15% Cabernet Franc, lagres 22-24 måneder på franske egetræsfade (1/3 nye).
  • Guidalberto: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot og 10% Sangiovese, lagres 12 måneder på franske og amerikanske egetræsfade. Vinen laves på selvstændige vinmarker.
  • Le Difese: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon og 30% Sangiovese, lagres i 12 måneder på franske og amerikanske egetræsfade. Vinen laves på druer fra de unge vinstokke fra Sassicaia og Guidalberto.

Sassicaia på Sardinien og i Patagonien

Barrua - nye højder på Sardinien

Familien Incisa della Rochetta er også involveret i at lave Barrua på Sardinien, der hurtigt har vundet anerkendelse som en af de allerbedste sardiske vine. Giacomo Tachis, grand old man i italiensk ønologi og en af mændende bag Sassicaias succes, er medejer og konsulent sammen med Sebastiano Rosa, Niccolò Incisa della Rochettas stedsøn. Man laver 2 vine, Montessu og Barrua, som allerede har fået 3 glas af Gambero Rosso flere gange.

Bodegas Chacra - Argentinas bedste Pinot Noir

I det uvejsomme Patagonien laver Mario's barnebarn, Piero Incisa della Rochetta, Argentinas bedste Pinot Noir vine på ældgamle vinmarker fra 1955 og 1932. Vinene er i øvrigt økologisk og biodynamisk certificerede. Piero er også eksportchef for familiefirmaet, Tenuta San Guido, men hans store passion er dog Bodega Chacra.
