SIRO PACENTI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO VECCHIE VIGNE 2010 (9)

Tuscany.

Complex aromas of walnut, dark fruit, stone, oyster shell, chalk and dried fruits. This shows fabulous intensity and balance with layer upon layer of fruit and polished tannins. Builds on the palate. It goes on for minutes. Better in 2019. December 2014 jamessuckling.com 2,500 cases produced. JS 100

Tuscany.

TENUTA SAN GUIDO BOLGHERI SASSICAIA 2012 (1 mag., OWC)

Tuscany.

Lots of lavender, minerals and black currants on the nose. Turns to blackberries. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and an exquisite finish. This is all about delicacy, finesse and grace. Yet there is a solid core of ripe tannins giving it backbone and outstanding form. Just opening now. Very pretty. November 2016 jamessuckling.com JS 95

TENUTA SAN GUIDO BOLGHERI SASSICAIA 2013 (1 mag., OWC)

Tuscany.

I had reviewed this wine just a few months prior and my impression has remained pretty much the same. One difference I did notice at this more recent tasting of the 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is the bouquet. It has shifted to slightly more delicate and finessed aromas of pressed flower and blue violets. You do of course get that solid core of dark fruit and spice that characterizes this famous Tuscan blend. But that extra time in the bottle has awarded wiggle room for profound precision and focused detailing. The wine's complexity emerges slowly with subtle notes of savory spice and tobacco. There is power and depth here, especially in terms of the mouthfeel. As the wine evolves in the glass, it begins to show ethereal tones of road paving, tar and licorice. This Sassicaia should go straight into the cellar. April 2017 Drink: 2018-2040 WA 97
