95 points, “Weightless and loaded with finesse, it’s an incredible result for what was a cool wet vintage in most of Italy.” – Wine Enthustiast

Sassicaia is a wine of haunting beauty. Able to transcend even the most complex of vintages, the team at Tenuta San Guido has done it again in 2014. Undulating like folds of velvet, across which rolls waves of blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry, black olive, black pepper, raspberry, Cuban cigar, bell pepper, rosemary and sophisticated spice. Serve this magnum only with friends you hold very dear.

What can you say about the legend that is Sassicaia? Widely acknowledged to be the first Super Tuscan and a catalyst for an Italian winemaking revolution. A wine so controversial it was relegated to a table wine by the restrictive DOC regulations, only to prove so successful and highly revered that it was granted its own DOC Bolgheri Sassicaia – the only single estate to receive this privilege.

The first Italian wine to receive 100 points from Robert Parker, a red that regularly beats Bordeaux’s First Growths in blind tasting competitions and one that prompted Jancis Robinson to ask herself “Does my working life get any better than this?” after sampling several vintages from magnum, before concluding “No it does not.” That’s why Decanter Magazine describes it as: “One of the greatest wines in the world, famed and feted for its timeless elegance, balance and longevity.”
