Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted from barrel, the 2014 Bolgheri Sassicaia is at a very awkward stage in its infancy. I won't venture in unfounded conjecture, but I will try to describe what we can ascertain from the wine at this young stage. The fruit is weak in intensity and the wine's color is a very light garnet hue. At great risk, the Marchese Incisa della Rochetta decided to put off harvest as long as possible. This was a cool and damp year that presented a big challenge to fruit ripening. Fruit came off the vines the last week of September, but sugar (and alcohol) readings had a tough time rising. The wine shows delicate tones of violets and wild berry. At the time of my tasting, it had only been in barrique for ten days. I doubt this wine will ever have the structure or complexity of other recent vintages.
