Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Reviews




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



98 Pointz James Suckling


“Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberry, black currant, rosemary, and lavender. Full body, bright acidity, and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now.”

Cellar Selection

 

Red berry, cedar, and light spice aromas lead the way on this dazzling red. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, delivering bright red currant, red raspberry, white pepper, and chopped herb alongside bright acidity and firm, polished tannins. Impeccably balanced, it's loaded with elegance, energy, and intensity but it's still young, so give it time to fully develop. Drink 2020–2038.”



97 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is released 30 years after the death of Tenuta San Guido founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, and in the same year that his son Nicolò celebrated his 80th birthday. This is a wine of excellent execution, beautiful balance, and seamless intensity. The bouquet opens slowly to reveal delicate aromas of dark fruit and integrated spice that build in steady strength. That forward momentum, which is so specific to Sassicaia, is what ultimately brings us confidence in the wine's remarkable ageing potential. The mouthfeel delivers freshness and power, but in measured doses, with long and silky persistence. The 2013 vintage should be set aside for ten more years.”

“A racy, tightly wound style, this red features violet, black currant, cherry, wild herb, spice, and mineral flavors matched to a dense, smooth texture. Shows finesse and intensity in a seemingly effortless manner. The aftertaste is long and focused. Should provide years of pleasure. Best from 2019 through 2035.”



92 Pointz Vinous


“The 2013 Sassicaia is a wine of grace and understatement. Silky, perfumed, and medium in body, the 2013 is one of the most delicate young Sassicaias I can remember tasting. At times, the 2013 does not taste much like a wine from Bolgheri at all. That is not positive nor negative, but simply an observation. Scents of lavender, sage, and menthol wrap around a core of blue/purplish fruit.”

The Sassicaia 2013 is just beautiful, and it takes a leap forward in quality. There is even greater precision and transparency with the aromas and flavours, there is a wonderful harmony and ease on the palate and there are even finer, and more seamless tannins on this wine. According to my co-host, Priscilla Incisa Della Rocchetta 2013 was a 'record vintage for Sassicaia'. Carlo Paoli adds spring arrived early but without excess, summer started slowly and was only hot for 20 days and they started harvest mid-September for Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything was slow, calm, and beautiful.' The 2013 is at the beginning of its drinking window and drinking beautifully now, but it still has a long time to go.”
