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+.
