From San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". Blend of 85% Cab Sauv & 15% Cab Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of rich black fruits & complex spice aromas. On the palate ripe blackberry, cherry and sweet currants with flavors of cedar, vanilla spice, leather, bits of tar and cacao, a powerhouse. Fine soft tannins. silky smooth ending with slight earthy espresso and mineral character. Tastes great now and has room to continue aging! Outstanding!!

Big. Rich. Balanced. Young. Needs more time. I would say wait until it’s 15.
