2016 is a vintage worthy of praise, considered by some even better than the exceptional 2015. Great extraction in terms of color and anthocyanic structure, combined with an extraordinary aromatic component, elegant and subtle tannins are the distinguishing features of this Sassicaia vintage. At the end of malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barriques (one third new wood and the rest, first and second passage) where it rested for 24 months of aging period which is in compliance with the production regulations. During this time the various masses have been kept separated according to the vineyard of origin. The blending occurred shortly before the preparation for bottling and subsequent refinement phase in glass before marketing.
