Sassicaia is the only wine from a single wine estate in Italy to have its own DOC.
With an indicative blend: Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc.
The Sassicaia is intense, concentrated and deep ruby-colored, this wine offers elegant, complex aromas of red fruit.
In the mouth it is rich and dense, yet harmonious, with sweet, balanced tannins.
Sassicaia has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extraordinary longevity.
"Lots of lavender, minerals and black currants on the nose. Turns to black berries. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and an exquisite finish. This is all about delicacy, finesse and grace. Yet there is a solid core of ripe tannins giving it backbone and outstanding form. The Sassicaia is better in 2017, but so delicious already. A wonderful surprise."
~ James Suckling, on the Sassicaia
A fantastic vintage, and at a best price for Tenuta San Guido in Australia.
