Sassicaia 2019

70cl

A truly stunning Cabernet Sauvignon from Italy's Tenuta San Guido. The purity of the Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptional here, reminiscent of some of the great Sassicaias from the 1980s. The palate is very expressive, with impressive flavours of currants, berries, cedar, and earth. There are also hints of floral notes and sweet spice, with powerful tannins and mouth-watering acidity.

Nose Dark and brooding on the nose, with notes of black berries, violets, clove, tobacco and a hint of wood-smoke.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Flavour The palate is more expressive, showing great depth and concentration, but also an ethereal floral note and sweet spice, framed by very masculine tannins and mouth-watering acidity.
