Buyer Review
  1. Geoff Pattison
    The release of the new vintage of Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia is always one of the most exciting times of the year in Italian wine, but this year is truly something else. 2015 was an incredible vintage in Tuscany marked by a long, warm summer that produced decadent yet powerful wines of immense concentration and depth. The just-released 2015 Sassicaia is one of the finest wines they have ever produced, garnering twin 97-point scores from Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate. According to Spectator this is the greatest vintage for Sassicaia since 1988, trailing only the legendary 1985. This is a modern masterpiece by Tenuta San Guido and fans of this genre-defining Super Tuscan should definitely plan to put some away in their cellar. For one week only, we are offering an introductory price of $199. Don’t delay!

  1. 97 Wine Spectator Notes

    Rich and concentrated, this red features black currant, blackberry, violet, mineral and spice flavors. Dense yet lively, structured yet impeccably balanced, with vibrant acidity driving the long, fruit-filled aftertaste. The oak is beautifully integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2042. 17,200 cases made. -Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

  2. 97 Wine Advocate Notes

    Having followed this wine's evolution in barrel for the past few years, it is an honor to evaluate the final product. This Sassicaia has blossomed since my previous encounters with it as a young, awkward adolescent. The long-awaited 2015 Bolgheri Sassicaia represents a tremendous effort that comes together with seamless precision and focus. This is a confident and proud red wine from Tuscany. Starting with the primary material at hand, you sense the quality of fruit thanks to the wine's beautifully dark appearance and the rich texture it offers to the palate. The acidity is integrated, but more freshness still would have been welcomed in my view (and would also contribute to its longevity). The bouquet is amplified both in terms of volume and length. Its playlist includes dark berry fruit, spice, leather, licorice and roasted coffee bean. Yet, the mouthfeel is extremely graceful and silky. The wine's undisputed pedigree is showcased on the palate. It should also be noted that this edition of Sassicaia feels more ready and open to me. It will age and evolve beautifully, but the 2015 Sassicaia can also be enjoyed in the medium-term. This wine is all about the here and now. -Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
