Layers of espresso, mocha, blackberry jam and spices take shape in the glass. The 2008 shows remarkable depth and polish all the way through to the fnish. The Lodovico is another big, persistent wine endowed with tons of Maremma warmth and personality...The potential for the future seems very, very bright." AG 95 (1555016) Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2006 $350 per bottle "The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all- time great recent vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred... Simply glorious, that's all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky fnish lasts an eternity, as waves of fruit caress the tannins with breathtaking elegance. Everything is in the right place in this magical Sassicaia. This is one for the ages. In a word: Awesome." AG 97 (150953) Le Macchiole Messorio 2007 $250 per bottle "The 2007 Messorio is another standout. A super-ripe expression of fruit is balanced with considerable structure, delicacy and fnesse, with scents of mocha, graphite, French oak, licorice and new leather that emerge over time...The fnish is long, nuanced and utterly impeccable...The 2007 isn't one of the more massive Messorios, instead it is a wine built on elegance." WA 96 (1559228)
