Ample sweet and expansive the 2003 Sassicaia offers generous notes of sweet dark fruit intermingled with notes of spices herbs earthiness and smoke in a full-bodied opulent expression of this wine. It is an outstanding effort for the vintage. Some cellaring is suggested although with air this wine is drinking beautifully right now. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2023. Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta is upbeat about his 2003s. â_oOf course it was a very hot dry vintage but under these circumstances Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc tended to perform better than other varietals such as Merlot. I am happy with the balance of our Sassicaia although clearly we can't call it a â_~classic' vintage. Sassicaia is a wine that needs bottle age to show its full potential and I am confident the 2003 will age well. Today it reminds me most of the 1978.â__Importer: Kobrand Corp. New York NY; tel.

Lots of raspberry and cherry on the nose. Full-bodied and chunky with lots of fruit and a long velvety finish. Hints of new wood. Big and juicy Sassicaia. Very well done for the vintage. Best after 2008. 15000 cases made.
