The 2010 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido 750 ml is from the Tuscany region of Italy. Sassicaia, from the Tuscan coastal area of Bolgheri, was established in the 1940s and sold publicly since the 1968 vintage. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, Bordeaux-style grapes, Sassicaia has a terroir on the Tenuta San Guido estate and winemaking barriques that mimic that of Graves, Bordeaux. Sassicaia is not only the most collectible Italian wine, but the vision of its founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who wanted a bouquet and age-worthy elegance like that of Bordeaux, made a ground-breaking change to the world’s perception of fine Italian wine. Wines of this caliber from this region are now called “Supertuscan.”

The 2010 Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia brings back some of the brambly rosemary and wild Mediterranean brush that was missing in 2009. This will greatly appeal to enthusiasts of Sassicaia’s trademark elegance. The wine shows extreme purity that brings its many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and Oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine mostly certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balance manner it evolves in the glass: It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. This is the harbinger of cellar longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.- Monica Larner (08/2013)
