2019 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri Sassicaia, Tuscany

£295.00 inc. VAT

Probably Italy’s most famous wine and one of the iconic red wines of the world, Sassicaia is one of the original ‘Super Tuscans’. 2019 was an outstanding vintage for the wine and the critics have been universal with their praise. Here’s Marina Larner’s thoughts –

“The bouquet is up front and very expressive from the get-go. It offers a generous display of crunchy, dark cherry that hints at the extra concentration and fruit weight obtained in the 2019 growing season. This vintage will be remembered for the crisp richness of the fruit and its important textural imprint. It also shows fine elegance, bordering on the ethereal, with berry aromas, tarry earth and brushes of balsam herb or grilled rosemary. Sassicaia always shows an almost-glossy finely knit quality to the polished mouthfeel, and I find it again here next to fresh acidity and firm tannins. Mouthfeel in 2019 is the wine’s strongest suit. The 2019 is one of the prettiest and most balanced editions of Sassicaia we’ve seen this past decade, along with the back-to-back duo of 2016 and 2015. The 2019 marries the precision of the 2016 with the rich fruit weight of the 2015. 2025 – 2055.” 98 points, Wine Advocate
