- Nicolò Incisa explains thus the choice of the name and creation of new wine in 2000: "The wine was created for two reasons:
first of all, the desire to see what we could accomplish with Merlot, a grape that we had never used before; second, the desire to offer the consumer a wine which could be appreciated at a younger age compared to our veteran Sassicaia".
Following the malolactic fermentation the wine was aged 15 months in French and partially American oak barrels. It is released on the market after an additional few months of ageing in the bottle.
Deep flavours of blackberries, cassis and mint are supported by vanilla and smoke. 15 month of oak ageing help soften the tannins to create a well structured and balanced wine perfect for any occasion.
