The principal international red grape varieties which age successfully are cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah/shiraz, nebbiolo, sangiovese and, to a lesser extent, pinot noir. White varieties would be riesling, chardonnay and Loire chenin blanc. Add to them the botrytised dessert wine (like Sauternes) and Vintage Port. Other good keeping varieties include Italian aglianico, and the tannat of Madiran and the dry white semillons of Australia.

Elegant structure and exceptional finesse, this is an absolute classic vintage for Sassicaia and good for 30 years.
Jean-Louis Chave was struggling with pneumonia when the 2007s were last tasted in November. Nothing ailing about the wines though; the 2007 red Hermitage is very classy with great depth of flavour and concentration.
