Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) In the 1920s the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamt of creating a ‘thoroughbred’ wine and for him, as for all the aristocracy of the time, the ideal was Bordeaux. This is how he described it in a letter to the esteemed wine critic, Luigi Veronelli dated 11 June 1974:

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Intense, concentrated and deep ruby-colored, this wine offers elegant, complex aromas of red fruit. In the mouth it is rich and dense, yet harmonious, with sweet, balanced tannins. The wine has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extraordinary longevity.

    파커 100점 검붉고 진한 색이지만 아직 올빈스럽지 않은 빛깔. 향도 아직 완전히 피어오르지 않는다. 첫모금의 인상은 상당히 동글동글하지만 짱짱히 살아있는 까슬한 탄닌맛이 입안 전체에 퍼진다. 충분히 10년은 더 가도 될 것 같다. 1시간 지나니 산미가 좀 도드러지면서 은은한 베리향과 미네랄이 조화되어 휼륭한 균형감을 나타낸다. 1:30이후에는 산미가 얀간 도드라져 맛은 특유의 상큼함이 본연의 모습을 찾는것 같으나 역시 100점의 큰 의미를 찾는거는 의문

    Still extremely youthful ! Fresh, big ripe fruit, mild spices with long smooth complexity & layers. One of the best Sassicala I have tasted till date.
