Heiner Lobenberg über:
Sassicaia 2014


Lobenberg: Sassicaia ist ein echter Genuss! Unglaublich seidiges Mundgefühl, etwas grüner Paprika, reife Pflaume, Zedernholz, eine Spur Tabak. Das alles in einem sexy Korsett, der Sassicaia bleibt enorm gebündelt und konzentriert am Gaumen. Sehr langer Nachhall, ordentlich Druck am Gaumen. Ein ganz typischer Vertreter des Hauses! 94-95/100


Vinum über: Sassicaia

-- Vinum: Zurückhaltend beim ersten Anschnuppern, wie es sich für einen solchen edlen Tropfen gehört, aber mit der Belüftung steigern sich die fruchtigen und balsamischen Facetten zu einem grandiosen Potpourri: Schwarze Johannisbeeren, Würze, Leder; der Ansatz kernig, die Gerbstoffe lebhaft, anhaltend und vielschichtig das Finale. Noblesse pur aus einem Jahrgang wie Anno dazumal! 18,5/20


Parker über: Sassicaia

-- Parker: This is my official review of the 2014 Bolgheri Sassicaia after having been graciously invited to the estate for various barrel samples spanning back several years. I have watched the evolution of this wine with a close eye and am impressed by how its real quality is diametrically opposed to the poor expectations of this difficult vintage. The nose is redolent of bright fruit and blackberry. Spice, tar and leather appear subtly at the back. The wine took on considerable weight each year I came back to taste it and this vintage was bottled earlier than average, precisely to give it more time to unwind and relax in the small confines of the bottle. This is a solid effort for sure and the wine is a stunning example of what it takes to make great wine, even when weather conditions are not in your favor. 92-94/100


Decanter über: Sassicaia

-- Decanter: Relatively pale and limpid, this has a hauntingly beautiful aromatic quality of lilies, violet, cassis and cherry, which in sum is utterly beguiling. In the mouth it is demure and delicious with bright succulent acidity and an almost Burgundian sweetness and structure, replete with filigree tannins. Here the fruit is youthful raspberries and red berries with a hint of savoury graphite and violet. In comparison to other, more broad shouldered, Sassicaia vintages such as the 2012, this is altogether more delicate and lacy, yet still retains great length and precision. This is not a Sassicaia for the ultra long haul and is so precociously good and drinkable now that it will take some resistance not to pull the cork sooner rather than later. That said, it would easily repay another decade in bottle. 93/100
