Heiner Lobenberg über:
Sassicaia 2017

97
/100

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. 97/100

Decanter über: Sassicaia

-- Decanter: The 2017 vintage for Sassicaia was described by winemaking consultant Graziana Grassini as 'contracted and difficult, but it evolved impressively well with great strides during the oak ageing'. The wine shows a great intensity and elegance on the super-restrained nose of bramble fruit, layered with cedar, kiwi peel and a touch of oak. Surprisingly velvety, silky tannins and brilliant acidity are supported by creamy mid-palate weight with an amazingly savoury finish of cedar and tobacco. 97/100

Falstaff über: Sassicaia

-- Falstaff: Leuchtendes, sattes Rubinrot. Intensive und klar gezeichnete Nase, duftet nach Brombeeren und Cassis, etwas Kardamom. Zeigt am Gaumen sehr tollen Zug, viel saftige Frucht, Tannin öffnet sich in vielen Schichten, im Finale feine Kräuterwürze, salzig. 97/100

Wine Enthusiast über: Sassicaia

-- Wine Enthusiast: This powerful wine is both rich and fruity. The flint soil of the vineyard gives a mineral edge to crisp white fruits that are finished with citrus flavors and a still-youthful tang. Drink the wine from 2021. Organic and biodynamic. 97/100

Suckling über: Sassicaia

-- Suckling: The balance and beauty to this is impressive, offering sweet, ripe currants and flowers with some crushed-stone and dry-earth undertones. Full-bodied with soft, polished tannins and a long, creamy-textured finish. It’s polished, yet concentrated. Better after 2022, but already very seductive. 96/100

International Wine Report über: Sassicaia

-- International Wine Report: The 2017 Sassicaia is a remarkable showing from this challenging vintage that experienced high temperatures and drought for most of the growing season. Despite the challenges set-forth by mother nature, the team at Tenuta San Guido has managed to produce an exceptional wine, through strict grape selection to eliminate impurities, and experienced decision making in both the vineyard and cellar. The final blend is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, which was sourced from the estates higher elevations plots situated about 1,100 feet above sea level, which received more relief from the hot daytime temperatures. As far as the wine itself, it begins with an aromatic profile of blackberries, cherries and hints of dark plum, which are laced with forest herbs, earthy minerals, fresh cut florals and spices, which all come together beautifully in the glass. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied and beautifully structured with polished tannins resulting in a gorgeous mouthfeel. It continues to impress with its notable concentration and overall balance leading up to the gorgeous finish. The wine spent 24 months in French oak barriques (one third new wood and the rest, first and second passage). The 2017 is nothing short of a total success and should not be overlooked. While appears this will be accessible earlier than most recent vintages, it also has plenty of aging potential and should go on to offer a drinking window that could span nearly two decades. 96/100
