Sassicaia Super Tuscan Red 2019

Tenuta San Guido, perhaps the most famous of all Italian wine estates, begins because Marchese Mario Incisa della Rochetta was curious & determined to create a fine Bordeaux style wine at home in Tuscany. Sassicaia: The original Super Tuscan was born!

Description

Varietal: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 25 months in oak (1/3 new).

Taste:  Nose is extremely graceful and intense with a lavender note enhanced by restrained bramble fruits, fermented citrus peel, an intense violet aroma and graphite minerality in depth. The savory palate features black currant, red plum and star anise while tobacco notes linger on the long finish. Elegant, polished tannins and bright acidity keep it beautifully balanced and focused. The 2019 Sassicaia is one of the prettiest and most balanced editions of Sassicaia we've seen this past decade, along with the back-to-back duo of 2016 and 2015. The 2019 marries the precision of the 2016 with the rich fruit weight of the 2015.
