TENUTA SAN GUIDO BOLGHERI SASSICAIA SASSICAIA 2006 (OWC)
THE TENUTA SAN GUIDO 2006 BOLGHERI SASSICAIA IS A TIMELESS CLASSIC. THIS MIGHT JUST BE THE VINTAGE TO PHOTOGRAPH IN AN ENCYCLOPEDIA ENTRY FOR SASSICAIA. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE AT THIS EXACT MOMENT IN ITS LONG AND PROMISING DRINKING WINDOW. THE WINE SHOWS LESS VOLUME COMPARED TO SOME OF THE MORE OPULENT VINTAGES, BUT IT ABSOLUTELY EXCELS IN TERMS OF LENGTH AND FINISH. IT OFFERS AMAZING DRIVE AND MOMENTUM THAT ARE FUELED BY THE EXTREMELY FINE NATURE OF THE WINE'S TEXTURE AND THE SEAMLESS UNITY OF ITS FLAVORS. IT TREADS IN LIGHT AND DELICATE FOOTSTEPS THAT WILL CARRY IT FAR INTO THE FUTURE. AS THEY SAY IN ITALIAN: "PIANO PIANO SI VA LONTANO" (SLOWLY SLOWLY YOU GO FAR). APRIL 2017 DRINK: 2017-2035 WA 96
6 BTS. PER LOT $1,500 - $1,700

Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
