Sassicaia · Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2020


Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany
´Sassicaia´ · Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2020, Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany
The harvest began in the first week of September with the grapes from the younger vineyards, starting with the Cabernet Franc, then continued with the Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyards at lower altitudes and ended in the last week of September with the grapes from the hills above 300 meters above sea level.

The grapes were selected using a sorting table to eliminate impurities and imperfections. Gentle pressing and careful destemming of the grapes to preserve the integrity of the berries and avoid excessive transfer of tannins. Alcoholic fermentation was completed at the end of October and took place regularly and at controlled temperatures. Frequent racking and pumping over allowed for excellent aroma extraction and fresh acidity in the musts. Malolactic fermentation took place in steel tanks at the end of November. In the first week of December, the wine was racked into oak barriques after frequent decanting to clean the musts.

At the end of malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in barriques with 45% new wood, 45% first passage and 10% second passage. After more than 25 months of ageing in wood, the Sassicaia 2020 was transferred to steel tanks before final blending and bottling. It is then refined in the bottle before being released onto the market. - Gerardo [TS07/21]

"The 2020 Sassicaia is a bold, rapturous wine. Dark, fleshy and expansive on the palate, the 2020 offers up scents of blackberry jam, gravel, spice, new leather, licorice and crème de cassis. Potent tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Sassicaia is never a huge wine, the 2020 does seem to have an extra dimension of textural intensity. It's an intensity that is hugely appealing.Estate Manager Carlo Paoli describes 2020 as a year with a long, rainy winter and a cold spring. 'Temperatures warmed up in the middle of June,' he explained. 'July was very hot, but heat moderated in August. Even so, it was a year in which ripeness moved quickly, as opposed to 2021 when ripeness was more gradual. We picked the entire estate in 22 days instead of the 29-30 that is more typical.' The 2020 spent 15-18 days on the skins, followed by 25 months in French oak, 50% new. Production is down about 30% because of selection in the vineyard.' - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

"Complex aromas and flavors of black currant, blackberry, iron, sweet tobacco and Mediterranean herbs are the hallmarks of this elegant, tensile red, which is already revealing plenty, yet still feels reserved, as though there were many more facets to be discovered. Superb harmony, freshness and a long aftertaste prevail. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2026 through 2045." - Wine Spectator
