An Italian icon that invented the Super-Tuscan movement and one of the world's greatest red wines; Sassicaia needs little introduction.
2015 Sassicaia is already being tipped as one of the all-time greats with comparisons being made to the legendary 1985. James Suckling has called it
"potentially one of the best Sassicaias in decades".
Having tasted the wine ourselves yesterday we wholeheartedly agree!
We anticipate very strong demand so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like any of this "refined, beautiful...classsic" Sassicaia.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc
"Love the aromas to this young red with blackcurrants, sage, cinnamon and five-spice character. Changes all the time. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a ripe and rich tannin backbone that gives form and beauty to the ripe and beautiful fruit. Tight and very long. Approachable now but will reward more in five to six years. A classic Sassicaia."

In addtition we can offer Tenuta San Guido's newest bottlings of Guidalberto and Le Difese.
2016 is shaping up to be a another stellar vintage in Bolgheri. Monica Larner calls it
"a beauty, with evident precision, focus and equilibrium" whilst James Suckling heaped praise on both wines scoring them 94-95 and 92-93 respectively.
These wines are fully worthy of consideration and offer a taste of Tenuta San Guido's magic at a very affordable pricepoint.

"Wonderful aromas of ripe cabernet sauvignon such as currants and plums. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and very long. Dynamic and beautiful. We will see, but this shows excellent potential."
