Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Reviews

This wine is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc.

95 Pointz Vinous

“The 2007 Sassicaia (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes onto the palate with masses of rich, opulent fruit that caress the palate with gorgeous length and a seamless beauty that is hard to fully capture. Dark wild cherries, plums, spices, minerals, and herbs develop in the glass. This is an especially bold, perhaps slightly uncharacteristic Sassicaia in its extroverted personality, but it is beautiful all the same. The inner perfume and sweetness carries through the long finish, where the sheer weight and glycerol of the fruit leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006. While it may lack that wine's freshness, structure, and potential longevity, the 2007 is immensely appealing today, and should drink beautifully pretty much out of the gate. That said, Sassicaia is always the most restrained of Bolgheri's heavy hitters. This is a superb effort from Tenuta San Guido.”

Cellar Selection

“This iconic Italian wine from Bolgheri’s landmark Sassicaia vineyard (characterized by little rocks, or 'sassi') offers an elegant bouquet comprised in equal measure by mineral, fruit, and spice nuances. The wine consists of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc and the finish is long, smooth, and very fine. This is an ageworthy wine that should not be opened before 2018.”

94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Here's a wine of power, determination, and confidence—as far as first impressions go. The 2007 Bolgheri Sassicaia leaves little hidden behind the curtain. It presents a frank and straightforward array of bold fruit, spice, leather, and tobacco-like aromas that emerge from the bouquet with energy and force. The aromas are complete and genuine. The palate, however, offers more space for interpretation and review. It is finessed and nuanced, thus requiring more time to fully comprehend and appreciate. Silky tannins are followed by fine textural smoothness and a long finish. The outgoing nature of the aromas make for a fascinating contrast against the inward and reticent nature of the mouthfeel.”

93 Pointz James Suckling

“This is classy on the nose with subtle currant, sweet tobacco, cigar box, and dried flowers. Cassis too. Full body, with refined tannins and a solid core of fruit. Polished and very pretty. Long and delicious already. But you have to wait on this. It has so much more to give.”

93 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Very enticing aromas of spices, meat, and berries. Full-bodied and juicy, soft and velvety, with a long, succulent finish.”

18/20 Pointz Pointz Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine

“85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Slightly cloudy dark ruby. Very neat, nicely integrated nose with definite freshness. Some mineral/iodine/oyster-shell undertow. Very grown-up wine with no suggestion of heat. Bone-dry finish. Cries out for food. Meat probably as the tannins are still in evidence. Just light sweetness that denotes fully ripe fruit.”
