Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri
Dark berry fruit and exotic spice scents fill the high-toned penetrating nose...smoothtannins frame the very long finish, leaving one with the impression of persistence and balance.

Wine & Spirits(2005 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09 The cabernet franc (15 percent) here seems to wrap the cassis and black cherry richness of cabernet sauvignon with the spiciness of fresh red peppercorns. Savory and bound for several hours, this becomes silky and elegant with air, the rich fruit supported by firm, earthy tannins. Deep and impressively structured, this is suited for a decade or more in the cellar.
