Aromas of ripe red cherry dark plum and kirsch are complicated by sexy woodsmoke eucalyptus and bay leaf. Silky and rather lush with considerable sweetness and creaminess to its ripe sweet flavours of cassis blackberry jelly and ripe black plum. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of minerals herbs dried flowers and smoke. Displays lovely balance and good length on the rich seamless creamy-ripe finish which exhibits a lingering menthol note that reminded me of a Napa cabernet. The 2000 vintage was a warm one especially in August with some varieties such as merlot reaching high sugar levels before full polyphenolic maturity was achieved. However the combination of a cooler microclimate and old cabernet vines allowed Tenuta San Guido to make a better wine than many on the Tuscan Coast this year.

Shows its class. Loaded with fruit. Rich yet balanced with lots of jammy and plummy character. Full-bodied with round tannins and a silky finish. Exotic. Sass made excellent wine again in a less than easy year. Best after... Shows its class. Loaded with fruit. Rich yet balanced with lots of jammy and plummy character.

A soft and delicious red with dried fruits, spice and mushroom and hints of herbs. Full-bodied, silky and velvety. Round and clean. I find this much better than released, showing beautifully now. Drink or hold.
