Tenuta San Guido Red Bordeaux Blend Bolgheri Sassicaia Sassicaia 2000
The “terroir” of Bolgheri, and especially its proximity to the sea, the particular light, and the microclimate, are definetly favourable to Cabernet. Once again, these elements allowed the birth of a great wine, even in a vintage which was not so impressive for the rest of Tuscany. It is a characteristic of Sassicaia to expect great results even in these less celebrated vintages. And this tendency was even more reinforced in the last decade. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits. Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins read more... on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.
