TENUTA SAN GUIDO Sassicaia 2012

The 2012 Sassicaia is a fantastic expression of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, which is all about sense of place, beautifully highlighting the stony, mineral characteristic of its terroir. As this slowly opens in the glass, pretty aromas of fresh blackberries, cherries, spring florals begin to take shape around a distinctive stony mineral character which resonates through the wine. This possesses a full body backed by fine polished tannins, displaying outstanding finesse and balance with gorgeous underlying acidity that provides a wonderful sense of freshness. Although the 2012 already displays the beautiful, elegant style of Sassicaia, it will be best to allow this some additional bottle age to further develop over the next few years.
