Product Description

The 2011 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia sports wonderful aromas of raspberries and chocolate, with blackberry, cherry, and vanilla notes leading into a well-structured palate. Tannins and acidity are present, balancing big fruit, spice, and minerality. The finish is dry, long, and very smooth.

Varietal Composition: 85 Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 Cabernet Franc

95 Points, "Collectibles" - Wine Spectator
"Ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors pick up rosemary, mineral and spice accents in this red, which is concentrated and intense, fresh and focused. Racy midpalate, this leans toward black currant and cedar notes on the solid finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2030. 13,500 cases made. -BS, 10/31/14

94+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Bolgheri Sassicaia speaks to a broad, yet very distinct audience. I am absolutely charmed by this vintage. Soft cherry and blackberry confit emerge from the bouquet in thick, luscious waves. Leather, spice and tar play supporting roles. The wine offers a generous and expansive style. It also shows impressive balance and coherent inner integrity. This vintage certainly bears the hallmarks of a hot vintage, but it never feels overdone. It delivers volume, intensity and rich texture. This Sassicaia is a wine of enormous craftsmanship." -ML, 4/28/17

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas suggest blackberry, cedar and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, notes of tobacco, licorice, exotic spice and cranberry accent the juicy black-cherry core. It's well balanced and elegant, with silky tannins. Drink 2016–2026." -KO, 5/1/15

93 Points - Vinous
"Full saturated ruby. Very pure, floral aromas of red cherry, blackberry, cassis, minerals and minty herbs. Juicy, sweetly spicy and multilayered, with strong but well-integrated acidity giving the wine lovely early balance and intensifying its dark fruit flavors. Broadens out impressively on the back half without losing its shape. This silky, very graceful Sassicaia might not be as long-lived as the most famous vintages of the past but is irresistible owing to its impeccable balance. “Lovely” is the word that dominated my tasting note." -ID, Dec/2014
