Cabernet sauvignon, Drinking 2022-2040+
PRICE TYPE: In Bond
Hailed a curvy, racy beauty from Antonio Galloni and a fascinating wine from Monica Larner, Sassicaia 2017 is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Sassicaia 2017 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. In her preview assessment of the wine, Larner describes incredibly well the tension existing from vintner and vintage and how, like in this case, the vintner comes out on top. Far from an easy vintage, 2017 has the merit to emphasise how incredibly special Tenuta San Guido’s terroir and how skilled the winemaking team are. Despite sustained temperatures throughout the growing season and summer and very little rainfall, Sassicaia 2017 has retained remarkable purity, elegance and precision.
