TENUTA SAN GUIDO Sassicaia 2011

The 2011 vintage can be considered one of the best in Bolgheri in over a decade and the 2011 Sassicaia has certainly benefited from these excellent conditions. This Sassicaia absolutely sensational, it's wonderfully elegant and classy, yet with plenty of muscle. It immediately opens up with seductive aromas of freshly crushed blackberries and currants followed by pain grille, roasted coffee, graphite and minerals, which all come together beautifully. This possesses a gorgeous fine, velvety texture, showing remarkable balance and finesse that carries all the way through. It finishes up long, silky and caressing, leaving behind notes of pure dark fruits. Even at this young age, this is already offering so much and looks to be a Sassicaia that will be accessible early on. Composed of 85 % Cabernet Sauvignon 15 % Cabernet Franc. (Best 2015-2030) - May, 2014 (JD)
