Varietals: Cabernet, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo.

Region: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy

What's So Special: A wine made mainly from Cabernet Sauvignon was a fundamental change to the Tuscan and Piedmont tradition of Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, respectively. The innovative decision to plant this variety at Tenuta San Guido was partly due to the between Tuscan terrain and that of Graves in Bordeaux. Long considered some of the finest Italian wine to come to the World market, Sassicaia never fails to please!

Tastes Like: Exceptional vintage for one of the icons of modern Italian enology. Brilliant ruby red, with great depth. Taut nose, with aromas of red currant, wild hints of geranium and laurel, with a citrus-iodine finish. The mouthfeel is vertical, very dense, with compact tannins and great elegance, backed by citrus notes. Deepness and drinkability at his best.

What the Pros Say: Decanter - 100 Points: "Sassicaia 2019 spent 25 months in oak (one-third new). ‘We are going longer in oak in the past few years,’ said Carlo Paoli, managing director of Tenuta San Guido. Quite pale in the glass, the nose is extremely graceful and intense with a lavender note enhanced by restrained bramble fruits, fermented citrus peel, an intense violet aroma and graphite minerality in depth. The attack is soft and full, the flavor savoury and cedary through to the finish, with integrated velvety tannins and lifted acidity. A perfectly woven structure is bound with signature freshness and fruit vibrancy, making this one for the long haul."
