Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido 2017 Bolgheri-Sassica

Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido 2017 Bolgheri-Sassica

€350.00
 

In 2017 Bolgheri was blessed by the third exceptional vintage on the trot, after the superb 2015-16. People are struggling to remember two such excellent consecutive vintages and it is fair to say that the release of the wines has been much anticipated. The critics have been lavish with their praise.

93/100 Wine Advocate

Sassicaia is today one of the most sought after fine wines in the world. This is larely because of the vision, energy and drive o proprietor Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. The name Sassicaia means place of many stones and the gravelly soil has been compared to those found in the Medoc.

"Mid-deep ruby-garnet. A notable nose ragrance with tobacco scent lifts out of the glass. Acore or ripe, sweet cassis fruit is wrapped in subtle clove oak spice, some earthy tones and cigar box. Needs only a little coaxing from the glass, whish is surprising, given its youth. Focussed, precise and elegant cassis on the palate with crushed rock and tobacco. Very fine, fairly firm tannins, with a line of acidity helping to give structure. Very long, delicate, scented finish." Tim Jackson, MW, jancisrobinson.com
