Tenuta San Guido.
The great Supertuscan, elected by Wine Spectator as the best wine of 2018.
Rich texture in the palate, extremely graceful and silky. It will age and evolve beautifully, but the 2015 Sassicaia can also be enjoyed in the medium-term. Sassicaia, like many of the best things in life, began as an experiment, a passion project that came to fruition thanks to good fortune and hard work.
CLASSIFICATION: Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC
GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon (85%); Cabernet Franc (15%)
COLOUR & BOUQUET: Rich and concentrated, this red features black currant, blackberry, violet, mineral and spice flavors.
TASTE: Dense yet lively, structured yet impeccably balanced, with vibrant acidity driving the long, fruit-filled aftertaste. The oak is beautifully integrated.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Special occasions
AWARDS: 97/100 Wine Spectator (2018) - The best wine of the world
