The 2011 Sassicaia is an absolutely sensational release in this vintage, as it displays stunning elegance and class, yet with plenty of muscle as well. It immediately begins to impress as it opens with seductive aromas of freshly crushed blackberries and currants followed by toast, roasted coffee, graphite and minerals, which all come together beautifully in the glass. This possesses a gorgeous fine, velvety texture and shows remarkable balance and finesse as it finishes up long, silky and caressing, leaving behind notes of pure dark fruits. Utterly capticating even at this young age, the 2011 is already offering so much and looks as if it will offer a early drinking window. Composed of 85 % Cabernet Sauvignon 15 % Cabernet Franc.
