Tenuta San Guido, Sassicaia, Bolgheri, Italy, 1995


The 1995 Bolgheri Sassicaia still holds court, thank you very much. It reminds me of a grande dame, or a woman of influence and sophistication who lights up the room thanks to her expertly delivered, albeit antiquated charm. The wine’s aged evolution is evident as the bouquet releases sure aromas of dried fruit, old spice, saffron and cola. The mouthfeel is svelte and lean with finely polished and silky tannins. In fact, the wine’s texture shows precision and elegance. Pretty menthol notes appear on the long finish. Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Apr 2017
