Began in 1944, Mario Incisa acquired Cab Sauv & Franc vine cuttings, planted them on San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Beautiful fruit & spice aromas. Berry fruit flavors with spice, leather and cacao, powerhouse. Fine tannins allows current enjoyment. Lingering, silky smooth ending with slight earthy coffee character. Question how well the ‘15 will age? It’s great, but $200, I’ll pass. Tasting Sample.

This was tremendously good. There’s been tasty bottles of Sassicaia over the years but I don’t recall any as good as this - 2015

Выпито 16.05.2020 в итальянском ресторане Langolo с Абрамовым . Сегодня особенный день - 30 лет Анне Дмитриевне. Я очень люблю свою старшую дочь. Она большая умница и труженица. 😍

Выпито 27.03.20 в Место про еду с Милановичем. Достойная Sassicaia 2015 года. Вино задавило ужин. Очень бархатное и нежное. Мое. Не зря положил ящик на закладку. Боюсь, не долежит.

2015 yielded a rich bottling. Dark ripe fruit, mint luscious tannins.

Was skeptical but the grass Sommelier at Marea , NYC, assured me that with a decant. And wow! Cherry, leather, and Earth tones abound. Drinking just fine
