Sassicaia 1988

Bolgheri Sassicaia, DOC

Levels into the neck; 1 nicked capsule, 1 slightly nicked label

On its 30th birthday, this remains a wonder of the wine world, with its great, intensely classic Cabernet Sauvignon nose, as youthful as ever. There is tremendous structure and sweetness on the palate - a liquid of extraordinary impact and a candidate for the most exciting wine ever produced in Italy! I have to call it, Operatic Cabernet Sauvignon. It has its own twist on the theme but, boy, does it deliver. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 90
