Tenuta San Guido Release
“The 2015 could be potentially one of the best Sassicaias in decades, and underlines the fantastic grape-growing season in Europe last year.” 98 Points, James Suckling
We are delighted to announce the release of the 2015 vintage of Sassicaia from Tenuta San Guido. The 2015 vintage once again captures the essence of this truly unique terroir showcasing generous and refined black fruit aromas, perfectly balanced as always by beautiful freshness and elegance. There has been much excitement about 2015 in Tuscany which the estate compares to the very famous 1985 vintage. Both shared similar climatic conditions - a mild winter that was followed by heavy rains in the spring and a hot summer, with higher than average temperatures in June and July, resulting in a very healthy vineyard and excellent ripening of the grapes.
Tenuta San Guido has created what James Suckling calls “potentially one of the best Sassicaia's in decades”, awarding 98 points in his most recent tasting. Antonio Galloni’s early Bolgheri reports say that the “warm, dry growing season produced generous, highly expressive wines.” There is no doubt that serious wine collectors will want to make considerable space for this release.
The 2015 is one of their best ever vintages; the purity and restraint of Sassicaia combines with the power that characterises the 2015 vintage throughout Bolgheri.
In addition to Sassicaia, we are extremely proud to offer Guidalberto 2016 and Le Difese 2016. As always, the other wines from this great estate offer exceptional value.
“One of the world’s great wines and an extraordinarily elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grown in Italy” Robert Parker
