Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1999

Jamaica allspice submerged in black cherry, black raisin, African violets, red roses, cooked poppyseed, grilled, wine marinated steak with rosemary garnish. The palate is silky with medium mouthfeel and stealthy tannic hooks are whisked away like burrs and prickles on a satin sock. Sweet Connecticut wrap of tobacco is assisted by a minute mocha and black peppercorn. This took a while to open, surprisingly, but well worth the wait!

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

It is indeed an impeccably made wine. A top example of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is intricate and complex, it is a wine that is imposing and provoking. It is though, not the type of wine that I would drink, but that it is just my personal problem, isn't it? #sassicaia #supertuscan #bolgheri — 8 years ago

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Fresh violets, black cherries half-cooked, near prunes, strong fresh cut hay, blackberry reduced and fortified, chopped oak, cedar, mushroom coffee. Chewy beauty spills red and black cherries across the palate. Light sarsaparilla tones enhance a complex array of thyme, oregano, herbs de Provence, espresso that turns rose tea. Rich with power and resonance that literally won’t quit!

Notes of cedar and a hint of clove on the nose. Big and bold - with a big backbone - lots of tannins but well balanced and a super long finish. Lovely wine. Opens for 2 hours prior to imbibing Years and years left to go on this big gun. . #sassicaia — 2 years ago

Castello di Bolgheri

Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2009

2009 Castello di Bolgheri Super Tuscan. Blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc & Merlot. The estate borders Sassicaia. As good but more budget friendly around $60 retail. Dark cherry and black currants waft from the glass while anise, cedar and mineral notes bring up the rear. Fleshy and firm. Stunning. #wine #tuscany #bolgheri #italy #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #sassicaia — 9 years ago
