Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007 (375ml)

$129

The 2007 Sassicaia (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes onto the palate with masses of rich, opulent fruit that caress the palate with gorgeous length and a seamless beauty that is hard to fully capture. Dark wild cherries, plums, spices, minerals and herbs develop in the glass. This is an especially bold, perhaps slightly uncharacteristic Sassicaia in its extroverted personality, but it is beautiful all the same. The inner perfume and sweetness carries through the long finish, where the sheer weight and glycerol of the fruit leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006... the 2007 is immensely appealing today, and should drink beautifully pretty much out of the gate... This is a superb effort from Tenuta San Guido. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2037. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Began in 1944, Mario Incisa acquired Cab Sauv & Franc vine cuttings, planted them on San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". A blend of 85% Cab Sauv, 15% Cab Franc. Aromas of black fruits & complex spice aromas. On the palate ripe black fruits, with flavors of cedar, vanilla spice, leather and cacao, a powerhouse. Fine soft tannins. silky smooth ending with slight earthy espresso character. Tastes great and has room to continue aging!

A rich, ripe nose with minty edges, dark blackcurrant fruit. Really zesty and lush with wood still quite prominent. Very pure and deep and long. Very good

Likely just beginning to show, powerful but also finessed, dried red roses, cherries, currants, tobacco, leather, cigar box and spices with silky tannins.

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
