Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido 2016 Bolgheri Tuscany

Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido 2016 Bolgheri Tuscany

€645.00
 
Wine Advocate 100/100 for the 2nd Year in a Row. This has amazing power, elegance and finesse on the nose – with a black-fruit perfume that is so gentle and subtle, so Sassicaia! It’s tremendously elegant on the palate too, but with latent power – building in the mouth, with layers of rich, dark fruit. It’s a real iron fist in a velvet glove. With beautifully balanced acidity and ripe, rounded tannins, it’s a superbly elegant glass of wine with a long and very fine finish. This will age endlessly. Drink 2024-2050+.

Description

Wine Advocate 100/100 for the 2nd Year in a Row. This has amazing power, elegance and finesse on the nose – with a black-fruit perfume that is so gentle and subtle, so Sassicaia! It’s tremendously elegant on the palate too, but with latent power – building in the mouth, with layers of rich, dark fruit. It’s a real iron fist in a velvet glove. With beautifully balanced acidity and ripe, rounded tannins, it’s a superbly elegant glass of wine with a long and very fine finish. This will age endlessly. Drink 2024-2050+. From the Saissicaia: This wine is chiseled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine's tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavors.
