Sassicaia is the flagship of Tenuta San Guido and an absolute icon of Italian wine that you'll find in every serious wine collection. The 2010 is an elegant and aromatic blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a small portion of Cabernet Franc. It's been made to age gracefully and with some cellar time under its belt, this is proving to be an extraordinary release.

About the wine

Tasting notes

This supremely elegant and age-worthy Sassicaia opens with an intense bouquet of black cherry, Mediterranean herbs, blue flower, cedar and leather aromas. Powerful but graceful, the palate delivers a vibrant core of black cherry accented with white pepper, mineral and balsamic notes alongside youthful but polished tannins and vibrant acidity. It’s not as exuberant as some of its counterparts, but it may outlive all the other Bolgheri 2010s
