Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1998

$419

Lovely, subtle yet complex aromas of currants, sage and green olives lead to a full-bodied red with a solid core of fruit and well-integrated tannins. Still very reserved on the finish... Wine Spectator

Probably in the top 5 wines ever drank, amazing that it's a cab, not as robust as a typical cab. Was almost like a mixture of a Bordeaux and a Barolo. Fantastic experience, probably worth the €250 price tag. But for slightly less quality, I can find a $100 Barolo anywhere...

Wow a beautiful nose of dark cherry currant berry fruit milk chocolate sweet herbs on the nose very well endowed very complex. Still a good amount of dark berry fruit very rich and silky texture with firm tannins and a long finish dark chocolate very well built this wine will last another ten years of more. Finish. 50+. Most excellent +
