Tenuta San Guido Red Bordeaux Blend Vino da Tavola Sassicaia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is *fantastic*. Intense and super long on the palate. It’s *insanely complex* yet subtle with so much going on, with a beautiful balance and tension. It is *full and powerful* with a big juicy character that goes on for minutes. Muscular yet covered with pretty fruit. Hard not to drink. But better in 2016. 98 points" --James Suckling

Almost a century later his great-grandson mario incisa della rocchetta would draw inspiration from these catalogues for his grafts of bordeaux vine cuttings. first on the family lands at the occhetta and. with the success that is known worldwide. on the land of bolgheri. which became part of the family possessions in 1930 on h is marriage to h is beloved Clarice della Gherardesca. From its first commercialization 40 years ago. at the wish of mario incisa della rocchetta. on the sassicaia label there appeared a family seal dating back to Medieval times representing the ideal testimony of the continuous love of the incisas for their lands.

The 2009 Sassicaia is unusually big, rich and opulent. Layers of fruit saturate the palate as the 2009 explodes from the glass with a heady melange of dark berries, plums, menthol, licorice and new leather. This is an especially racy Sassicaia. Readers who enjoy the classicism of Sassicaia are likely to find the 2009 too rich, especially at this early stage. The wine needs at least a few years in bottle to drop some of its baby fat. Despite its huge fruit, the 2009 is also pretty closed down and not anywhere close to being ready to show off its pedigree. Sassicaia is arguably Italy's most famous wine, so it's always great when it lives up to its reputation. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.

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

Dense ruby-colored, with a tight personality, the 1999 Sassicaia offers up aromas of smoke, vanilla, and red as well as black currants. Medium-bodied, with high tannin and excellent purity, this elegant, restrained, moderately concentrated effort needs another 2ndash;3 years of cellaring. It should keep for 12ndash;15 years. The abundant tannin in addition to a certain austerity may prove troublesome in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2016.

After a dry summer, harvest at Sassicaia began the first week of September, 2000, ending on the 15th. This cabernet reflects the sunny warmth of that Tuscan season in black currant depths. Itrsquo;s refined and supple, a black beauty held at armrsquo;s length. The discreet distance allows each taste to show all the winersquo;s elements in perfect balance; a tide of dark chocolate and black plum rolls in, an undertow of red berry and granite tannin pulls out. The flavors last, deepening even as they lift in the end, a widening chord that should only grow more resonant with age.
