Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2010

$179.99

New release of Sassicaia, the greatest Super-Tuscan from Italy.  Limited.Sassicaia is the most iconic wine made in Italy today.  It is the most collected Italian wine in the world and arguably could be the most famous wine in your cellar. This is the wine that all other Super Tuscans are based on and compared to and that made Bolgheri, on the coast of Tuscany, one of the most famous wine regions in the world today.  Sassicaia 2010, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, has an intense, deep ruby red color. Elegance is its main feature and this combined with good acidity gives it a long lasting taste. Sweet and harmonious tannins, as well as an intense bouquet complete this amazing vintage.  Perhaps Italy's greatest wine, order the classic new 2010 vintage while we have it available.94 Points James Suckling:  "The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it's an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass. The red is very aromatic with currant, dried berry, cocoa bean, and hints of wood. It's full-bodied, with intense yet very polished tannins and a long finish. It's very refined and beautiful with a tangy finish. The Cabernet Franc comes through here at the finish. Lively. Hard not to drink now....Stylistically, the 2010 reminds me of something like 2001 or 1979. These are soft and silky wines with friendly fruit and a juicy, fresh and fruity style. The 1979 is still drinking extremely well today. And the 2001 is just starting to drink well now."

2010. Soft texture, riper fruit, mostly plum. Acid really jumps on the finish and seemed a little out of place. Felt a little off-kilter. #FancyWine

Very noble, lots of complexity and concentration. Will definitely improve with age.
