Very mineral nose, very refined. A beautiful wine - soft and luxurious wine with a solid finish on tannins with prunes.

Beautiful aromas of summer fruits and hints of cream. Then turns to dried Provençal herbs, such as rosemary. Well-defined Sass. Full-bodied, with sleek, refined tannins and a silky finish. All in finesse. Classy wine. Almost chewy. Reminds me of the ... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2001 San Guido Sassicaia 750ml

The first vintage of Sassicaia was made in 1968; thus the "Super Tuscan" was born. The wine is mostly Cabernet with a touch of Cabernet Franc. It is made in the image of a great Bordeaux and, like great Bordeaux, will age for a very long time in your cellar.
