Tasting Notes

(85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc)The wine is deep in colour with subtle notes of blackcurrant and vanilla on the nose. On the palate intense cassis flavours and precise mineral qualities dominate - ripe, fine grained tannins and firm acidity framework the wine. Poised, very long and elegant. Drink from 2014 but will develop further over the next 20 years +. World class - this is a brilliant Sassicaia.

ProducerTenuta San Guido

Quietly, elegantly and almost involuntarily, the Incisa della Rocchetta family set to release the wine that would revolutionise the Italian wine scene creating a totally new genre: the Super-Tuscan. Tenuta San Guido is now a legendary estate and was first planted in the 1940s by the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who noted the similarity between Bolgheri’s terroir and that of the Graves. When, in 1968, Sassicaia was finally commercially released, it took the fine wine world by storm. Cementing its iconic status, in 1994 it was granted its own appellation – Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC.
