Tenuta San Guido Red Bordeaux Blend Bolgheri Sassicaia Sassicaia 2009
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.
The nose showed cherry and raspberry with sweet herbal tea notes. On the palate, it was perfectly balanced with pure focused fruit and a tense structure that’s keeping this infant of a wine in check. I found it to be lighter on its feet than recent vintages, yet elegant and very pretty. The finish was long with pure red fruits.
Three and a half glasses
Good deep ruby red in the glass, generous notes of chocolate raisins, some herbs and a little smoke. Mid bodied and well balanced, lovely mouth feel with silky tannins. Blackberry on the mid palate, very fresh, lively and fruity. Long sumptuous finish. Stellar effort. 94 Points
4.25 to 4.5 stars Appearance: deep ruby/ slight brick core transitioning to ruby rim Nose: medium intensity with aromas of cherry (red & black), black tea, currant (red & black) Palate: medium+ velvety tannins, high acidity, long length, flavors of black tea, black cherry, red currant, rose. The wine is very complex layered, perfectly balanced which transitions from the fresh fruit elements to the more dried elements with time.
In Magnum is even better... ;-)

You want decadence? Here it is. A fine single malt scotch that has been aged in barrels that previously held the ultimate Super Tuscan wine from Italy. Made with finesse that never lets this big daddy wine overpower the scotch flavors. Smooth and lasting.
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. The wine has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extr
This great Cabernet allies a dense core of pure, ripe black currant fruit flavors and aromas with smoky notes of cedar, tobacco and vanilla to a refined supporting acidity and a sleek, finely integrated tannic structure.
Bright red with a pale rim. Subdued, youthfully reticent nose hints at pomegranate, currant, cedar and minerals. Soft and approachable already but a bit monolithic, with lush, easygoing flavors of redcurrant, cassis, smoke and vanilla. A seamlessly r... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 San Guido Sassicaia 750ml
Sassicaia is a unique interpretation of the Cabernet variety, a wine of great breadth, complexity and longevity. The intense blackberry and cassis aromas, offset by notes of smoke and spice, are confirmed on a palate of lush concentration underscored by firm, ripe tannins carrying into a long, elegant finish.
Dark ruby in color, showing aromas of currant, new oak and fresh herbs, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with very chewy tannins and an outstanding concentration of fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Needs plenty of bottle age. Best after 2012.
