Description · Tenuta San Guido
Sassicaia 2007 (Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc)
The Sassicaia 2007: is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006. While it may lack that wine's freshness, structure and potential longevity, the 2007 is immensely appealing today, and should drink beautifully pretty much out of the gate. That said, Sassicaia is always the most restrained of Bolgheri's heavy hitters. This is a superb effort from Tenuta San Guido.
TASTING NOTE Sassicaia 2013:
- View: ruby red, garnet flashes.
- Nose: fruity notes of blueberry and blackcurrant, Mediterranean spices, chocolate and light leather, with notes of graphite in the background.
- Palate: elegant with fine tannins, comparable to those of a great Pauillac, silky, with a housing, lightweight but extremely long.
DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN: Bolgheri Sassicaia.
VINEYARD: Tenuta San Guido
GRAPES: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc 15%.
