At Sassicaia in 2018, the replenished water reserves in the soil, combined with a long and moderate growing season, gave a cool and classic wines. It emphasizes elegance over opulence, subtlety over power. The wine feels cool and lithe, with a midweight frame that gives full expression to high-toned flavors of plum and raspberry. Those red berry flavors gain brightness, depth and precision with time in the glass, maintaining superb balance through the long finish.
