Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Reviews



90 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

 

“Not the best vintage for Sassicaia enthusiasts or collectors, but certainly noteworthy thanks to defined herbal aromas such as rosemary and sage backed by black plum, blackberry, tobacco, cigar box, and leather. The mouthfeel is velvety and supple with unmistakable elegance delivered over a long, menthol-like finish.”



88 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Oddly enough, this is the first official review of the 2002 Bolgheri Sassicaia in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Presumably, the wine was overlooked due to the infamy of this widely condemned vintage. However, all is not lost. The wine offers a rather subtle bouquet of dried fruit, autumnal leaf, forest floor, button mushrooms, tar, and balsam herb. The effect is flat and one-dimensional. And, the finish lacks freshness and vigor. What’s the upside you ask? The wine seems to have taken a life of its own. At a plateau now, I don’t think it will change much in the coming years. Its a weaker expression of Sassicaia for sure, but Sassicaia it is nonetheless.”

17.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine


“Deep garnet with some brick at the rim. Lots of forest floor, mushrooms, nutty and super-complex but no longer any primary fruit. A little bit of coffee. Very mature on the palate with a definite Marmite (yeast extract) flavour and yet still a fruit sweetness. Rounded but still keeps its shape. Cool and fresh on the finish. Needs drinking fairly soon but not falling over. Some olive savoury notes and rounded finish.”


ENJOY!
