2015 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri, Tuscany

The 2015 Sassicaia has a beautiful nose of red fruits, flowers and a hint of herbal complexity. The palate is balanced, with very fine tannins, purity, and salinity that unfurls on the finish. This is a complete wine with gorgeous precision, and remarkable understated power and elegance.

TASTING NOTES

Love the aromas to this young red with blackcurrants, sage, cinnamon and five-spice character. Changes all the time. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a ripe and rich tannin backbone that gives form and beauty to the ripe and beautiful fruit. Tight and very long. Approachable now but will reward more in five to six years. A classic Sassicaia.
