2021 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri Sassicaia

£350.00 inc. VAT

Sassicaia is one of the original ‘Super Tuscans’ and probably Italy’s most famous wine and one of the iconic red wines of the world.

2021 was an outstanding vintage in Tuscany and one that has seen Sassicaia receive 100 points from Monica Larner of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Take it away Monica…

“Here it is: A quintessential Sassicaia that represents the excellence of the vintage and also respects the unique taste profile of this distinguished Tuscan blend of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc. The Tenuta San Guido 2021 Bolgheri Sassicaia offers impeccable balance, excellent freshness and absolutely no signs of over-ripeness. The fruit balance is ideal with a hint of crunch and lasting tension from pulp and skins. The tannins are deftly managed with firm grip and enough velvetiness to add volume and length. There is no greenness on the bouquet that instead offers mulled herbs and spice, with cinnamon and clove, layered delicately between mostly red and some purple berry fruits. Redcurrant, blueberry, sweet pomegranate and Rainier cherry run strong in this vintage. A fragrant hint of heritage rose emerges with time. The oak tones are geared toward gingerbread, hazelnut, cigar, sandalwood and something like a grilled sweet red pepper. To the palate, it offers nice weight with no heavy glycerin, and a rinse of acidity that adds to the wine’s natural energy, brightness and viscosity. That marked freshness opens the wine up to long aging potential, but you still need to give it more time in bottle.” 100 points, Wine Advocate

The greatest Sassicaia ever? Quite possibly.
