TENUTA SAN GUIDO BOLGHERI SASSICAIA SASSICAIA 2016
U. 6 X BN.
THE 2016 SASSICAIA IS A WINE OF SOARING ACHIEVEMENT. THIS WINE IS CHISELED AND SHARP WITH BLACKBERRY, RIPE CHERRY, GRILLED HERB AND BARBECUE SPICE. THE AROMAS FLOW FROM THE GLASS IN A CONTINUOUS STREAM AND ARE ALL MARKED BY RADIANT INTENSITY. THE MOUTHFEEL IS LONG AND POWERFUL. THE CRISP LINEARITY OF THE WINE'S TANNIC BACKBONE IS PERFECTLY MEASURED TO THE VOLUME AND DEPTH OF THE FRUIT FLAVORS. TO MY MIND, THE 2016 SASSICAIA STANDS TALL NEXT TO THE EPIC 1985 VINTAGE THAT SET THE ULTIMATE BENCHMARK FOR VINO ITALIANO. JANUARY 2019 DRINK 2021-2050 WA 100

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
