Bolgheri Sassicaia 2009 75cl / 14%
A bottle of 2009 Bolgheri Sassicaia, bottled at Tenuta San Guido. This is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.
As well as winning plaudits from international critics, the 2009 Sassicaia was also the Italian Gambero Rosso wine guide's Red Wine of the Year in 2013, who described it as 'perfection'.
'Though very ripe in its flavor profile, this wine conveys a rare lightness of touch that is typical of Sassicaia but rare for this vintage on the Tuscan Coast. Finishes with noble tannins and outstanding palate-staining length. For all its creamy power and charm, I really like this wine's balance and the subtle delivery of its complex flavors. I have tasted every vintage of Sassicaia on countless occasions and, other than the legendary 1985, I have no doubt that this is one of the two or three best Sassicaias at a similar stage of development. 97+/100' Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
