Tenuta San Guido Red Bordeaux Blend Vino da Tavola Sassicaia 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Sassicaia is another strong effort from Tenuta San Guido. Medium in body it reveals an understated delicate expression of smoke herbs tobacco and sweet dark fruit. The wine possesses compelling harmony and a gorgeous sense of inner perfume that flows from start to finish. This is an outstanding showing in a very challenging vintage. Sassicaia is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a small amount of Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.RP.
