6 x Tenuta San Guido, Sassicaia, Bolgheri, Italy, 2019 – EN PRIMEUR – IBD

£1,200.00

We’re very excited to bring you the 2019 vintage Sassicaia. Today’s release is a fantastic example of what Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc can achieve with perfect terroir and expert hands.

Sassicaia 2019 is at once succulent yet subtle; ripe but refined, it reveals a lightness of touch which even at this early stage is beguiling. Our recent tasting confirmed our impression of the 2019 vintage as outstanding, and indeed Sassicaia as one of Italy’s truly iconic wines, worthy of its sought after cult following.

 

“The 2019 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.” – 98 Points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

One of the great vintages of the last decades. Although it was not generous in quantity (about 15% less than in 2016) for the quality of the grapes, which reached maturity in healthy and perfect conditions, is to be considered exceptional.

This is a pre-release offer, priced exclusive of UK duty and VAT and the stock is expected to arrive in May.
