Debut from the Pioneering Triumvirate That Changed Wine As We Know It.
“Sassicaia is a wine of many milestones. Its status is legendary.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Sassicaia remains the most classic of the big Tuscan wines, with an emphasis on aromatic freshness and acidity that is the result of picking earlier than is common in most neighboring properties.” Antonio Galloni
Today marks one of the most highly anticipated debuts of the year! It is the official new release from the Super Tuscan Patriarch and what is Italy’s most collected wine; in fact, it is fair to say, year-in, and year-out, this is Zachys #1 selling collector wine from across the planet! It is the iconic Sassicaia, never over the top, always old world in style and does amazing things with age. It was the wine that sparked a revolution with the first commercial release of the 1968 and is the first Italian wine to receive 100-point perfection with the 1985. More importantly, it is the First Growth of Italy, and the Incisa della Rocchetta family is not influenced by the international demand to create a super-extracted, monster red wine; instead, they continue to produce the most elegant and finessed Super Tuscan there is – and that continues in 2014!
All the best,
