Sassicaia, from the Tuscan coastal area of Bolgheri, was established in the 1940s and sold publicly since the 1968 vintage. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, Bordeaux-style grapes, Sassicaia has a terroir on the Tenuta San Guido estate and winemaking barriques that mimic that of Graves, Bordeaux. Sassicaia is not only the most collectible Italian wine, but the vision of its founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who wanted a bouquet and age-worthy elegance like that of Bordeaux, made a ground-breaking change to the world’s perception of fine Italian wine. Wines of this caliber from this region are now called “Supertuscan.”

The 2004 Sassicaia is a lovely, understated effort. Medium in body, it presents nuanced layers of sweet dark fruit, licorice, menthol and toasted oak that gradually open onto a finely-knit frame of notable length. Today it appears to be quite reticent and still holding back much of its potential. Both bottles I sampled showed less vibrancy and freshness in both color and flavors than the other top 2004s I tasted alongside it, suggesting that the wine is still suffering from bottle shock. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. - Antonio Galloni
