Tenuta San Guido - Sassicaia 2014
Enige wijn van een wijnhuis met zijn eigen DOC...En niet voor niks, de absólute top!
Jancis Robinson 17.5/20
"For fans of luncheon claret? Or old-style Lafite? Definitely not for blockbuster fans. But it does have lots of class and builds towards an elegant finale and long finish."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93/100
This is my official review of the 2014 Bolgheri Sassicaia after having been graciously invited to the estate for various barrel samples spanning back several years. I have watched the evolution of this wine with a close eye and am impressed by how its real quality is diametrically opposed to the poor expectations of this difficult vintage. The nose is redolent of bright fruit and blackberry. Spice, tar and leather appear subtly at the back. The wine took on considerable weight each year I came back to taste it and this vintage was bottled earlier than average, precisely to give it more time to unwind and relax in the small confines of the bottle. This is a solid effort for sure and the wine is a stunning example of what it takes to make great wine, even when weather conditions are not in your favor.
Distinctly Old World in style, this red boasts savory, cedar and mineral accents to the core of black currant and macerated cherry fruit. Elegant and persistent, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
