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. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2037.

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.

Very enticing aromas of spices meat and berries. Full-bodied and juicy soft and velvety with a long succulent finish. Best after 2011. 20000 cases made. -JS
