The 2010 vintage was another cool year, with a wet start then a hot and dry July before more rainfall in August. Picking didn't finish until 31 October. Unlike 2014, many wines in this vintage have incredible longevity, and that's the case with Sassicaia. It still displays a youthful nose of crunchy fruits and spice, with more of a red fruit character than the 2014. Somewhat austere and monolithic, it combines big acidity with structural yet streamlined tannins; its core of blackcurrant fruit takes a back seat. Herbal, dusty and earthy, it demands more time to reach its full potential.
The 2010 Sassicaia is just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic development. Sweet tobacco, mint, pine, dried cherries and licorice open up in the glass, but only with great reluctance. The 2010 remains a wine of striking precision and nuance, but it also has an element of classical austerity that is especially apparent today.
