Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2008

$269

This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It's the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now...Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008.

The price seems very low in light of this." - Dave Sokolin</strong></div><img src="../images/shell/bottomfade.jpg"/></center>

Dense, black color; black currant with secondary aromatics of oak barrel spice and very slight black olive. Remains youthful in density and tannins. Looking forward to trying another bottle in 5 years.
